Manticore. The Early History of Encyclopedia

The publication presents the early history of an encyclopedia in a detailed and multifaceted way, deepening the existing research on the issue. The author outlines the title metaphor of an encyclopedia as “manticore” – a hybrid entity composed of words imitating things, he thoroughly analyses theoretical problems of Western culture which are part of the encyclopedism, referring to its pre-modern realizations (from the lost work of Hippias of Elis to Great Mirror of Vincent of Beauvais and Benedykt Chmielowski’s New Athens). The books also explores Diderot’s Encyclopédie and the most important features of modern encyclopedias.

Keywords: encyclopedia, encyclopedism, Pliny the Elder, Diderot, Benedykt Chmielowski.
