Philosophy Resources

On this page I provide links to some of my favorite philosophy resources. It's a handy place for me to place links so that I can easily find them when I need them.

Encyclopedias & Dictionaries

  1. Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy [description]
  2. By far the most current, complete, and authoritative general encyclopedia of philosophy available today. Articles are written by professional philosophers for a professional audience, so some of them may be a bit dense and hard for non-philosophers to read. All articles contain an extensive bibliography (non-annotated).
  3. Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy [description]
  4. Very current and nearly as complete as the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy (SEP), but not as authoritative. The articles are written by professional philosophers for general readers, so it's a bit easier to read than the SEP. All articles contain an annotated bibliography.
  5. Meta-Encyclopedia of Philosophy [description]
  6. A handy resource for comparing entries from seven different freely available philosophical encyclopedias and dictionaries, including the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy and the Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy. Just click on a letter at the top and you'll see a list of topics with links to all of the entries from all seven resources on those topics.
  7. A Dictionary of Philosophical Terms and Names [description]
  8. Compiled from various sources, this is a handy online dictionary of philosophical terms.

Open Access Archives

  1. PhilPapers [description]
  2. The most important open access archive of philosophy work today.

Digital Libraries and Classic Texts

  1. Early Modern Philosophy Texts [description]
  2. An excellent collection of English language and English translations of philosophical texts from Machiavelli (1469-1527) to Sidgwick (1838-1900). Texts have been edited and annotated by distinguished philosopher Jonathan Bennett to make the original ideas more accessible to modern readers than they would be otherwise. Highly recommended for beginning students of philosophy.
  3. The Internet Classics Archive [description]
  4. Contains a large collection of English translations of mostly ancient Greek and Roman texts, including philosophical texts from Plato, Aristotle, Epicurus, and Confucius. In general, these are older, out-of-copyright translations.
  5. Athenaeum Library of Philosophy [description]
  6. Contains a large collection of English-language texts and translations of texts covering many prominent (and many not-so-prominent) philosophical (and non-philosophical) figures. Not as easy to use as Early Modern Philosophy Texts and unfortunately little information about the quality of the texts and translations is provided.
  7. Christian Classics Ethereal Library [description]
  8. Contains a large collection (primarily English language versions) of Christian theological and devotional classics. In general, these are older, out-of-copyright texts.
  9. Open Theism Information Site [description]
  10. A site managed by John Sanders, one of the leading proponents of open theism. He provides links to many academic essays on open theism.
