Principia Cybernetica Project (PCP)

This site contains information, articles, and links to various topics in philosophy. The focus seems to be on more modern trends in philosophy, crossing over into areas such as cognitive science and AI. Not all links work, but check under "What's New" to see a list of the most recently added content. This may be a site worth looking at for researchers interested in modern philosophical thought.

Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy

Essays in this online encyclopedia are written by experts or a group of experts from the field. The work is "dynamic," and is, therefore, incomplete. New entries are still being added, however. Entries look to be of substantial length. This may be a good place to start research or to find a brief overview of a philosophy-related topic.

The Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy
