PHIL 4931: Senior Honors Seminar


Getting Started


This list of resources is intended to go along with an essay on library research methods, but it's also a free-standing introduction to major sources for in-depth research in philosophy.

Sources for background

Philosophical literature


Sources for book reviews

Interdisciplinary sources

BC subscribes to over 800 speciality databases covering everything from molecules to the Middle Ages. If your work is interdisciplinary you'll likely find that the philosophy sources I've outlined will not be enough. Ask for a recommendation, or take a look at our Database A to Z list.
