Doing Research in Philosophy
The Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy
The Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy is a free, peer-reviewed online encyclopedia covering almost all areas of philosophy.
It is a great place to begin your research. You can use the encyclopedia to build your background knowledge of a particular philosopher or philosophical position and then view recommended resources for further reading.
Philosopher's Index This link opens in a new window
The Philosopher’s Index is the world’s most current and comprehensive bibliography of scholarly research in philosophy.
The Philosopher's Index is a great place to search for books and articles when doing more in-depth research on a topic. You can use it to see what books and articles have been written on a topic, or to see all the work done by a particular author. Don't hesitate to contact your philosophy subject librarian if you need help finding something in particular.
