The Stanford Encyclopaedia of Philosophy

Each month I will feature a philosophy website

This month’s website is the wonderful Stanford Encyclopaedia of Philosophy

This incredibly useful open-access resource will help you get a grip on any issue in philosophy. It will not always be an easy read. But it will give you the pros and cons, the history of an issue and an idea of who has worked, and is working, on it. At the end of every entry there is a bibliography. This will ensure you never run out of reading on the issue.

The entries are constantly updated (and each is dated so you know exactly how old it is), and the author is named so you can be sure that he or she is bone fide. Over 1500 professional philosophers have helped to write the entries.

I support the SEP with a small direct debit every month. I think they are worth every penny. If you’d like to support them you can do so here.
