Descripción

Although the Dictionary is primarily a philological work, DeMaria shows how it also serves literary, moral, and educational purposes. By analyzing the content of the 116,000 illustrative quotations used by Johnson, the author illuminates the major themes of the book: knowledge and ignorance, truth and probabiity, learning and education, language, religion, and morality. Johnson's choice of which quotations to include represents his vision of the intellectual landscape.
