Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy (SEP)
"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, our dynamic reference work maintains academic standards
while evolving and adapting in response to new research."
The Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy
"Most of the articles in The Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy
are original contributions by specialized philosophers around
the Internet; these are identifiable by the author's name at
the foot of the article. Others are are temporary,
or "proto articles," and have largely been adapted from
"PhilPapers is a comprehensive directory of online philosophy

Early Modern Texts
"Here are versions of some classics of early modern philosophy,
and a few from the 19th century, prepared with a view to
making them easier to read while leaving intact the
main arguments, doctrines, and lines of thought."
"Podcasts of top philosophers interviewed on bite-sized topics."
"At its heart, philosophy is about asking simple, even silly, questions:
the sort of questions you probably asked when you were a kid.
What's it all about? Why is there something rather than nothing?
Does time stretch infinitely backwards as well as infinitely forward?
Sometimes, these simple questions have complex answers,
and The Philosopher's Zone is your guide through
the strange thickets of logic, metaphysics and ethics."
"Entitled opinions (about life and literature)
conversations with Professor Robert Harrison
Rosina Pierotti Professor in Italian Literature at Stanford University"

"The 10-Minute Puzzle is a podcast series dedicated to presenting
in a clear, concise, and accessible manner
central problems that engage contemporary philosophy."
The Partially Examined Life
"The Partially Examined Life is a philosophy podcast by some guys
who were at one point set on doing philosophy for a living but then
thought better of it. Each episode, we pick a text and chat about it
with some balance between insight and flippancy.
You don't have to know any philosophy, or even to have read the text
we're talking about to (mostly) follow and (hopefully) enjoy the discussion."
"Philosophy Now is a newsstand magazine for everyone interested in ideas.
It aims to corrupt innocent citizens by convincing them that
philosophy can be exciting, worthwhile and comprehensible,
and also to provide some light and enjoyable reading matter for those
already ensnared by the muse, such as philosophy students and academics."
Society for Applied Philosophy
"The Society for Applied Philosophy's Annual Lectures.
The Society for Applied Philosophy was founded in 1982 with the aim of

...topics come from a number of
different areas of social life - law, politics, economics, science, technology, medicine and
education are among the most obvious."

"Peter Adamson, Professor of Ancient and Medieval Philosophy at King's College London,
takes listeners through the history of Western philosophy, "without any gaps."
Beginning with the earliest ancient thinkers, the series will look at the
ideas and lives of the major philosophers...
as well as the lesser-known figures of the tradition."
New Books in Philosophy
"New Books in Philosophy features peer-to-peer discussions with philosophers
about their new ideas as expressed in their newly published books...
Our goal is to bridge the academic and public spheres without
shortchanging the complexity of the ideas being discussed.
Expect to be challenged – we’ll avoid the jargon, but we won’t avoid the difficulty."
Phenomenal Qualities Project
"This project will explore issues connected with the exact nature of the phenomenal aspects of experience.
In perceptual and related experiences subjects are aware of a range of phenomenal qualities:
these are the colours, sounds, and so on, which are immediately present in conscious experience."
