Getting Started and Resources for Political Philosophy
Sources For Your Assignment
Your assignment for an annotated bibliography requires you to find secondary, scholarly sources in the philosophical literature to help you annalize themes and motifs in literary texts. The best place for doing this is Philosopher's Index. You might also use PhilPapers to explore different kinds and branches of philosophy.
I've also linked the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy below, which might be helpfulfor understanding particular philosophers, philosophical movements, and concepts. For a fuller offering of more databases, explore other research guides, a selection of which are below.
