注释
The word encyclopedia, which to us usually means a large set of books, descends from a phrase that involved coming to grips with the contents of such books. The Greek phrase is enkuklios paideia, made up of enkuklios, “cyclical, periodic, ordinary,” and paideia, “education,” and meaning “general education, literally the arts and sciences that a person should study to be liberally educated.” Copyists of Latin manuscripts took this phrase to be the Greek word enkuklopaedia, with the same meaning, and this spurious Greek word became the New Latin word encyclopaedia, coming into English with the sense “general course of instruction,” first recorded in 1531. In New Latin the word was chosen as the title of a reference work covering all knowledge. The first such use in English is recorded in 1644.
单词encyclopedia 对我们而言通常是指一大套书, 来源于一个涉及掌握这类书内容的短语。希腊片语enkuklios paideia 是由下列两个词组成的 enkuklios “循环的,周期性,平常的”以及 paideia “教育”, 含义是“普通教育,从字面上说就是一个想接受通才教育的人所应该学习的艺术和科学知识”。 拉丁文手稿的抄录者将此片语当成了带有相同词义的希腊词enkuklopaedia , 而该谬传的希腊词又构成为新拉丁语词encyclopaedia , 带着其“指导教育的普遍课程”之语意又进入英语,最先记载于1531年。在新拉丁语中该词被选中作为一本覆盖各科知识的参考著作的书名。在英国首次这样的用法记载于1644年
