Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy

The Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy (IEP) (ISSN 2161-0002) was founded in 1995 as a non-profit organization to provide open access to detailed, scholarly information on key topics and philosophers in all areas of philosophy. The Encyclopedia is free of charge and available to all users of the Internet world-wide.

The Encyclopedia receives no funding, and operates through the volunteer work of the editors, authors, volunteers, and technical advisers. The authors are specialists in the areas in which they write, and are frequently leading authorities. Submissions are peer reviewed by specialists according to strict criteria.

Consequently, the quality of these articles are at the same level as that of the best multi-volume encyclopedias of philosophy which appear in print. However, an encyclopedia article surveys its field and so is not equivalent to a journal article that advances the field. Topics include:
