Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy (IEP) is a freely accessible online reference work on terms, topics and theorists of systematic philosophy and the history of philosophy. It was founded in 1995 by James Fieser. The current general editors are James Fieser and Bradley Dowden . The authors include subject editors and volunteers. The articles are often written by relevant experts and always by at least graduated specialists, go through a peer-review process and are mostly reliable and of high quality, but often more introductory than, for example, the specialist articles in the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy . In individual cases, the IEP temporarily uses freely available text material or publishes articles under the technical quality, for example of the Stanford or Routledge Encyclopedia. The IEP has not yet been completed and is regularly updated; In some cases, older existing articles are also replaced by newer and better versions.
