Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy (free site)

The IEP is free of charge and available to all Internet users worldwide.


The Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy was founded in 1995 for the purpose of providing detailed, scholarly information on key topics and philosophers in all areas of philosophy.

The present staff of 25 editors and approximately 200 authors hold doctorate degrees and are professors at colleges and universities around the world, most notably from the United States, Great Britain, and Australia.

The submission and review process of articles is the same as that with printed philosophy journals, books and reference works.  The authors are specialists in their fields and are frequently leading authorities.  Submissions are peer-reviewed according to strict criteria.
