Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy

The Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy (SEP) is the premier reference work in philosophy, and covers an enormous range of philosophical topics through in-depth entries. Under the leadership of Co-Principal Editors, Edward N. Zalta and Uri Nodelman, the SEP brings together over two thousand philosophers and scholars from around the world to maintain a unique, truly dynamic reference work.  

Each area of philosophy is served by a team of subject editors. The Editorial Board, which consists of these subject editors, numbers about 170 philosophers, and they identify which entries are needed and which experts should be solicited to contribute them. All submissions are refereed by these subject editors or independent experts before publication, and authors are expected to update their entries on a periodic basis.
