Question ID: 483424
I am writing a thesis using the author-date system of citation as explained in Kate Turabian's Manual for Writers of Term Papers, Theses, and Dissertations. I am citing articles from an anthology of art criticism. The anthology is called ARt in Theory: 1648-1815, by Charles Harrison and Paul Wood, and it was published in 2000. When I cite my reference within the text, do I use the date of the Harrison and Wood book, or the date that the article in question (by Kant, say) was written, like 1790? In other words, should my in text citation look like this: (Kant 1790, 1031) or like this (Kant 2000, 345)? The Turabian book is not clear to me on this question.

Hello shannonstoney~ It's important to cite whatever volume you are reading. There are at least two reasons for this. One is that some modern books have slight errors when it comes to quoting old material. The second is that citation is all about allowing a reader to trace your steps. You don't want to lead them down the wrong path, by stearing them toward a book you didn't actually use for reference. So, in this case, your citation would be for the 2000 book. For additional reference, here are the MLA rules of citation for an anthology: http://www.library.cornell.edu/newhelp/res_strategy/citing/mla.html And the very basic information provided by "Manual for Writers of Term Papers:" http://www.philosophy.eku.edu/Williams/HON102Web/Documentation-BH.htm Kind regards, Kriswrite RESEARCH STRATEGY: Researcher's personal knowledge Google Searches: citation rules anthologies, anthologies "Manual for Writers of Term Papers"
