University of Tennessee students can meet with Riley Finch to discuss which courses to take to receive a major or minor in philosophy. And he is lovely. So do reach out to him. You might be closer to a major /minor than you realise.

Academic Resources

  • The Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy (SEP) provides introductory surveys of many topics in philosophy. The entries are all free to view online. A $5/year subscription gives you access to PDFs of all the entries.

  • The Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy (IEP) is still being developed, but is a useful resource. It is similar to the SEP.

  • Think is a philosophy journal written with undergraduates and non-specialists in mind. The articles, whilst being "proper" journal articles, tend to be more accessible than articles in other journals. It is available through the university library.

  • Philosophy Compass is similar to Think, but the journal aims for survey articles, rather than argumentative pieces. These articles can be particularly helpful when orienting yourself within an area of philosophy.

  • Oxford Bibliographies Online provides a concise survey of recent literature in many areas of philosophy.

  • PhilPapers provides a collection of philosophy research. It is organised by topic and by author.
