About This Blog

This blog has been created for the purposes of streamlining philosophical research.  With the ever growing amount of material being published both in multifarious official academic journals and in the amateur arena (sometimes published by professional academics), there is a growing need to organize some of the material according to its subject matter.  

For example, one need only execute a quick Youtube search to find that there is a plethora of secondary material published on Nietzsche's "On The Genealogy Of Morals."  The goal of this blog is to sift through as much of this secondary material as possible and locate the most pertinent and valuable academic sources for Nietzsche's Genealogy.  Of course, this blog is not exclusively concerned with Nietzsche.  Other philosopher's and philosophical movements will be examined and available as well.  

Once relevant and valuable sources (both primary and secondary and in print and video) have been identified, the next step is to cite and place these sources into one blog post.  The end goal of this process is to have amalgamated sources for a particular philosophical work or movement that will serve as a means for cutting down on research time as well as be a stepping stone to further research.  It is important to note here that this process is always ongoing and susceptible to change in the forms of adding, subtracting, revising sources in light of various circumstances.

This blog will not guarantee that all content of the cited primary or secondary sources will be available to everyone. The citation to sources will be available to everyone; however, the actual article, video, or source in other mediums may not be.  For example, access to some cited material contained herein require some kind of membership or subscription in order to access them.  These restrictions are often imposed by the publishing company who holds the rights to the journal or database in question.  For example, if you are interested in a cited journal article which can be found in the JSTOR or Project Muse databases, then you may be required to have a membership or subscription to JSTOR or Project Muse.  It is often the case that university students, faculty, and administrators will have access to these databases as a part of their official association with their respective universities.  However, sometimes universities will not hold a subscription to a particular database.  For example, if one finds a cited journal article that they are interested in accessing but are unable to because his university does not have a subscription to that particular database, then one may consider an interlibrary loan.  See your university library for more information on this.

This blog is open and encourages submissions of citations to works that are relevant and valuable to doing academic research.  Please send submissions to: ithinkphilosophy@gmail.com or place them in the relevant comment sections in the relevant blog post.
