Philosophy Encyclopedias

The Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy / Edited by James Fieser. Martin, TN. : University of Tennessee at Martin, 1997.
Articles in the Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy are currently from three sources (1) adaptations from public domain sources, (2) adaptations of material written by the editor for classroom purposes, and (3) original contributions by professional philosophers around the internet. Over time, the editor seeks to replace all of the first two types of articles with original contributions by professional philosophers.
