- Mortimer J. Adler & Max
- "Centre for the Study of Great Ideas". Dedicated to a certain view of philosophy — its nature, importance, and
the way to teach it. Rather portentous in style given its populist basis, and crippled by Usemap menus.
- Varol Akman
- Essentially a personal/departmental Web page, but with some useful links, and on-line papers.
- "Philosophy in Cyberspace". A vast range of philosophy links, though the new front page depends upon a Usemap menu,
otherwise offering links to five sections identified only by number — a sort of lucky dip. Apart from the main site (at Monash)
there's an Italian mirror.
- B -
Mainly materials related to his teaching, plus some of his own research, etc. After the first page, it's well written and easy to
Details of his work, including on-line material, and forthcoming publications.
- C -
"Dialegesthai — Philosophical Themes". Appallingly written, making it almost impossible to use with text-based
"Sean's One-Stop Philosophy Shop". This used to be one of the fullest guides to philosophy resources, attractively and
Includes details of his own work, plus an extensive bibliography of recent work in the philosophy of mind (though there's an awful
lot of "cognitive science" and A.I. as well), a listing of philosophers with papers available on line, and much more.
Details of his translations of various philosophical texts.
"Philosophy at Large". One of the best (and longest lived) introductions to philosophy resources on the Internet.
Philosophy Lists; "an attempt to provide information on western philosophy as practiced around the world. It includes
evaluative guides to journals, books and departments."
"A Polish Philosophy Page [...] This page is devoted to Polish Philosophy of the 20th Century and it aims to be an instrument
to aid knowledge and diffusion of the philosophical ideas of the main Polish philosophers since 1900."
"Ontology: a resource guide for philosophers" Very large site, dealing with ontology in a somewhat extended sense,
historically and by topic.
- D -
A little about his own work, material for his students, and various philosophy links.
"refdesk.com". A small, idiosyncratic, alphabetical list of links to Philosophy and other resources.
- E -
The text of his book The Evolutionary Tales, which includes The
"Collection of Informal Fallacies", drawn from any number of
- F -
"A Rational Life". Social dilemmas and related subjects -- such as vagueness, Rational Choice, Public Choice, politics,
paradoxes, and the problems of governance in modern societies. Somewhat hastily thought out for the most part, and with an odd tension
between a Mr-Spock-like attempt to suppress anything but logic (irrational and doomed to failure, of course) and a tendency to swallow
outrageously unscientific and unphilosophical speculation like Richard Dawkins' memes...
Material for his students (though worth looking at for others), plus some on-line papers. Not only frames-crippled,
but tells you what browser and what screen resolution you should be using...
- H -
Crippled by just about every gimmick available to a Web page.
"The Verulam Institute of Human Studies: Philosophical Anthropology". A linearly organised (that is, you have to read the
pages in order) brief bibliographic introduction to a fairly narrow approach to a fairly broad area of thought, including the philosophy
of culture, sociobiology, etc. Presumably based in St Albans?
"Die Philosophieseite" based in Switzerland, written in German.
- I -
Also available in Japanese and French. Offerings include his own work, links to sites inside and
outside Japan, and a calendar of Hume events in Japan.

Bruce B. Janz
From here you can access all the various pages he's set up (on African philosophy, religion, continental philosophy, etc.), to which
I have separate links in the appropriate sections of this site.
- K -
Various resources on offer, including a Dictionary of Philosophical Terms and
"Back to Socrates". Says that it contains all sorts of on-line documentsts, but all I see with either Lynx or graphical
Some philosophical pieces of his own, plus links to other sites, cartoons, and miscellanea.
- L -
J. Karel Lambert
His own Web page, containing biographical info, plus a select bibliography.
In French. Good set of links to philosophy resources.
Apart from various ethics resources (also listed individually on the Ethics page), this page
lists his own papers teaching materials, etc.
Nils P. Lie-Gjeseth
A resource mainly for students in Norwegian upper-secondary schools: in Norwegian
Personal site of a non-professional philosopher in New Zealand, offering papers concerning epistemology/philosophy of science.
The Philosophy section of her site The Source.

"Infinite Ink: writing and publishing about computing, mathematics, science, and philosophy".
"Analytic Philosophy Central". In terms of content this is well worth visiting, but with a text-based browser it's
messy, and with a graphical browser parts of it are virtually unreadable (e.g., blue text on a black background).
Cognitive science, pheneomenology, etc.
- O -
"The Big Dummy's Guide to Theology, Philosophy, and Ethics". An introduction to concepts and arguments for techies. Try
it — really.

Kent D. Palmer
Also his Thinknet Resource Centre.
Academic links, his articles and books, his teaching, and his Kant page.
"An Existential Philosopher's Museum."

other sites, etc.

- S -
"Turing Test Homepage". Resources and links, mostly philosophical, relevant to the Turing Test.
"Virtuelles Philosophenstübchen." Offers "hypertexts on philosophy, self organization, ecology, science fiction
and so on". Mainly in German.
Devoted to "Philosophical Counselling" — and yes, those are scare quotes. Regular users of my site
might not be very surprised to discover that I'm more than a little dubious concerning this recent phenomenon. I'll
limit my remarks (for the moment) to pointing out that Schuster's site trades on a pretty obvious equivocation between
two meanings of the verb "counsel" in his attempt to link his activities with those of real philosophers like Plato,
Descartes, and Locke.
"on Analytic Philosophy and Psychology in the Twentieth Century — and other vitally important
A collection of his own pages on various subjects, but especially metaphysics.
Notes, papers, an ftp link to the Birmingham "Cognition and Affect" project, and more, all beautifully and considerately
Home Page, including a number of on-line papers.
Very full and neatly organised guide to philosophical resources. He's no longer up-dating it, but it remains useful.
Includes a number of on-line papers, lectures, and notes, especially Philosophy as a Blood Sport and two of his books for free down-load.

Jonni B. Taylor
It's gone from being difficult to use with a text-based browser to being almost impossible, depending as it does on a Usemap menu.
"The Philosophy Site: an Irish website dedicated to the pursuit of truth and wisdom in a spirit of freedom, scholarly rigour
and personal integrity."
- V -
"Philosophical Essays and Musings: Topics in current philosophy and culture studies." A collection of his papers (some in
full, others just abstracts).
J. David Velleman
On-line papers, teaching materials, even a book...
- W -
"The Virtue of What Is — Philosophical Poetry and Fiction about God, Growth, Truth and the Meeting Place of Good and Evil
at the Heart of Creation." The "philosophical" tag is a little hard to justify, and the poetry doesn't do it for me,
though it might for you.
See Mortimer Adler.
Apart from the philosophical songs and other "phun",
and personal-page sort of stuff, there are some on-line papers here.
"pyrrhon.de" in German, ofering many interesting and useful sections including ones on Philosophy, Logic, and Greek myth.

Edward N. Zalta
"Metaphysics Research Lab at CSLI". Interesting in its own right, but also for information on philosophers such as Ernst
Mally and Gottlob Frege.
Includes notes written for students to help them understand Western and Eastern philosophies, sections on Greek philosophy and John
Dewey, on-line texts, philosophy crossword puzzles(!), links to other philosophy resources, and something for "adjunct
professors" (which probably means something to Americans, but not to me). Well worth a look.
