Example text

This series of “bibliographies”—more accurately, indexes—covers exhaustively, for specified periods of time, the contents of a number of the most historically significant journals in nineteenth- and twentieth-century Western philosophy—journals which regularly provided venues for the most important philosophers of their time, including figures of the stature of, for example, Heidegger and Russell. The extremely—maybe excessively—thorough indexing afforded by these volumes goes well beyond the titles of articles, beyond even abstracts or descriptors, to include indexing by significant words of the actual contents, that is, the full text, of the articles.
