Introduction


Welcome to the Subject Guide for Philosophy! The guide provides an introduction to some of the most important Philosophy resources available via the library.

The information and resources in this guide will help get you started on your research journey. You can use the guide to find and access:


  • Books
  • Articles
  • Web resources
  • Guidance on searching effectively and evaluating what you find

Books

To search for books and eBooks you can use Library Search. Library Search is a tool which enables you to search the library catalogue and also other resources (e.g. journal and newspaper articles).


Articles & Primary Sources

A good starting point if you are looking for articles is Library Search.

However, if you need to explore the literature further and undertake a more comprehensive search, you can also use the following resources (note though that not all of them are full-text, so you may need to follow up references using Library Search):
