Information Hubs

Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy

Articles in the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy provide some of the most extensive sources of information about Chinese philosophy on line. As of December 2008, the SEP included the following entries on Chinese thought. A number of new articles have since been added, including survey articles on Chinese metaphysics, epistemology, and language and logic.

Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy

Another excellent source is the Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy, which covers many topics not treated in the SEP. As of December 2008, the IEP included these articles on Chinese philosophy. Again, other articles have since been added.

New articles appearing after I compiled this list can be found here.
