Guide to Philosophy on the Internet

Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy
This is a one-stop-shop for finding the meaning of key terms in philosophy as well as a brief overview of the biography and teachings of major and minor philosophers.

The Radical Academy
Unlike what the name would suggest, this site provides information on a wide range of philosophical topics. It includes "The Classic Philosophers," "Glossary of Philosophical Terms," "Adventures in Philosophy," and "Religion Resource Center." In the "Philosophical Resource Center," there is a database of quotations from great philosophers, searchable by keyword or by philosopher.

The WWW Virtual Library: Philosophy
This philosophy library is made available through the University of Bristol's Department of Philosophy. This site makes available the philosophy section of the "Social Science Information Gateway" (SOSIG). SOSIG provides a philosophy search engine.

UM-Flint Department of Philosophy
The top part of this page simply presents information about the course offerings of the University of Michigan-Flint Department of Philosophy. At the bottom of the page, though, is a wonderful collection of philosophy sites on the web.

Yahoo Philosophers search
In the normal Yahoo search engine, type "philosophers>" in front of your search to search their philosophy database. Example of a search: "philosophers>John Locke".
