From its inception, the SEP was designed so that each entry is maintained and kept up-to-date by an expert or group of experts in the field. All entries and substantive updates are refereed by the members of a distinguished editorial board before they are made public. Consequently, SEP’s dynamic reference work maintains academic standards while evolving and adapting in response to new research.
The Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy (IEP) (ISSN 2161-0002) 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 Encyclopedia receives no funding, and operates through the volunteer work of the editors, authors, volunteers, and technical advisers.
Philosophy of technology is a rapidly growing branch of philosophy. Many philosophers now regard it as imperative to systematically inquire into the basis and consequences of innovation. This increasing interest in technology is primarily due to the fact that artifacts, techniques, and technical systems have fundamentally changed the lives of human beings, the ways in which politics and science are carried out, and the pervasive ways that we conceptualize our near and long-term futures. This bibliography identifies some of the main works in philosophy of technology that clarify what technology is and critiques some of its consequences.
PhilPapers is a comprehensive index and bibliography of philosophy maintained by the community of philosophers. Using advanced trawling techniques and large scale crowdsourcing, PhilPapers monitors all sources of research content in philosophy, including journals, books, open access archives, and personal pages maintained by academics.
The Philosopher’s Index has remained the most authoritative and comprehensive bibliography in philosophy for fifty years.
