Our collections are tailored to meet the current and ongoing research and instructional needs of faculty and students in the Department of Philosophy. These areas include the history of philosophy, philosophy of science, ethics, metaphysics and epistemology, with particular emphasis on the Greek and Classical traditions, the Early Modern period, German idealism and theory, and the Nineteenth and Twentieth Centuries. Our collections are also quite interdisciplinary as they overlap into areas represented by both UCSD's Science Studies Program and the Cognitive Science Program.
This bibliographic database offers informative, author-written abstracts covering scholarly research in all areas of philosophy. The literature covered goes back to 1940 and includes journal articles, books, book chapters such as contributions to an anthology and book reviews.
