The Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy

Abridged Table of Contents

I came across this via a link to Bayes Theorem (see prior post). The index lists all the topics that are to be covered, it looks like about 80% or so are covered (based on two samples).

Not all the entries are readable by a non-specialist. The Bell's Theorem entry was, to me, incomprehensible.

It reminds me of a massive hypertext encyclopedia of philosophy I came across about 7 years ago. It was a european project. I wonder where it is now (I couldn't find it via Google).

I look forward to reading a history of these projects in about 20-30 years.
