Working Bibliography for PHIL 449, Spring 2014

This bibliography is a work in progress. I have provided web links for some of the articles I have added recently (I started the bibliography in 2009), but for those w/o weblinks, you can use either Google Scholar or the Philosopher's Index: http://resources.library.ubc.ca/62/

This is a bibliography I have used in various iterations of this course, so there are many things here that might not be relevant for what we're focusing on in this particular course.

Please add any articles or books you find useful for the course to this bibliography.

To edit this page

First log in with your CWL on the left side of the page, and then click on "edit" at the top of the page after that. You'll also need to learn some formatting rules if you want your entry to look nice (but this isn't required), which can be found here: Help:Editing and here: Help:Formatting.

Bibliography

Many of the weblinks below are accessible only through a UBC internet connection or through a UBC VPN. Those that are links to open access journals, of course, are accessible without such a connection. Some texts that fit under more than one category are given more than once, below.
