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.
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.
