The best resource is the
library. Books and journals still have a degree of quality
control that is often lacking on the internet (anyone can put up a web page).
With that caveat in mind, there are of course some valuable resources at
The bulk of these sites are for your research. But why are you doing research? Probably to help you write a paper. There's a knack to writing good philosophy papers. I highly recommend this manual for philosophy students "How to Write Philosophy Papers," by Dr. William O. Stephens at Creighton University.
Useful Philosophy Links:
Begin with the Philosophy Pages Dictionary of
philosophical terms. The Philosophy Pages main page
is also a great reference tool.
Episteme Links is a very useful resource.
The Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy is useful.
The American Philosophical Association is a good place to know about.
General searching: use the Wikipedia Philosophy portal
Many classics of philosophy are in the Online Library of Liberty.
Magazine is a good resource also, as well as Philosophy
Open Court's Philosophy and Popular Culture series
Univ. Press of Kentucky's Philosophy of Popular Culture series
Blackwell's Philosophy and Popular Culture series
Watch for future updates as I learn of more useful links! Also, check other faculty members’ pages!
