The Dictionary of Theories is exactly what it purports to be, an alphabetized compendium of theories…all types of theories…5000 theories, to be precise. It covers “the arts, economics, history, linguistics, philosophy, psychology, sociology, hard sciences and more.” Ever wonder about glottochronology or the cosmic censorship hypothesis? This is the book for you.
I paid all of $6 for it on the clearance shelf at Borders.
It’s currently listed on Amazon starting at 42¢, used.
