Encyclopedias

The Encyclopedia of Aesthetics is the most substantial English-language reference work devoted solely to the exploration of this subject. Featuring more than 600 articles by more than 500 globally recognised art historians, philosophers, and theorists, this encyclopedia provides coverage of historical accounts and critical discussions on the subject.
This encyclopedia includes over 280 articles, nearly all on applied ethics, e.g., euthanasia, eugenics, sexual harassment, journalistic ethics, informed consent, and computer security, and a few on theoretical ethics, e.g., consequentialism and deontology.
Covering the “long” Enlightenment, from the rise of Descartes' disciples in 1670 to the restoration of the Bourbon monarchy in 1815, these 700 articles by leading scholars range from discussions of mercantilism and democracy to the battlefield to the dissemination of ideas in salons and coffeehouses. Breaking conventional geographical boundaries, coverage includes not only Western Europe but also North America, Brazil, and Iberian, Russian, Jewish, and Eastern European cultures.
The Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy (IEP) was founded in 1995 as a non-profit organization to provide open access to detailed, scholarly information on key topics and philosophers in all areas of philosophy.
The Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy (SEP) has been designed so that each entry is maintained and kept up to date by an expert or group of experts in the field. Consequently, this dynamic reference work maintains academic standards while evolving and adapting in response to new research.
'World philosophies' presents a narrative history arranged geographically. After an introductory outline chapter, the concepts that arose on the ancient subcontinent of India, in Chinese antiquity, and so on, are developed culture by culture and epoch by epoch.
