Philosophy: Home

Find Books, Databases, Journals and more on philosophical topics.


Areas of study in Philosophy range from the history of philosophy to schools of philosophy to study of individual philosophers and philosophical issues. The Marriott Library has rich resources in all these areas. The book and journal collection is large, and there is also a wealth of information in electronic formats. This is a guide to the basic material to do research in Philosophy. It is intended as a starting place and is thus not a comprehensive list of tools but a selective and general guide.


Getting Started

This is an online index and bibliography of philosophical research maintained by a community of philosophers. They monitor a range of research sources--journals, books, digital repositories, personal webpages--to build the index. 

Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy
This is an online, full-text encyclopedia developed by Stanford University. Well-known contributors have been asked to submit articles in their areas of expertise. The database is searchable by keyword and one can browse through an alphabetical list of subjects covered. All articles contain bibliographies and their are links in the articles and bibliographies. Though this endeavor holds great promise in that the contributors will be able to update their articles and bibliographies with the new developments in their fields, it remains very incomplete.

A weekly podcast, radio show, and blog that examines pop culture and our deeply held beliefs about science, morality, and the human condition.
