This guide will introduce you to resources that you can use when studying Philosophy..


Welcome! The purpose of this guide is to offer research help with a focus on resources that will be particularly useful to you as you navigate your Philosophy coursework and research. 

Remember throughout your time at W&J, the library is here to help! Some frequent ways that we help Philosophy students are in helping them find resources for their research project (including archival materials), refining search strategies, and figuring out the most appropriate way to cite their sources.

What does research look like in this discipline?

Research is more than just searching for an answer and reporting that answer. For English researchers, it's an iterative process of asking questions, understanding how others have approached similar questions, and eventually drawing your own conclusions on what you believe the answer to be. If this feels overwhelming, don't be afraid to ask for help at any point during the process!
