Dear Reader! The main idea of the present project "Philosophical Resources in Internet" is support for search and creation of philosophical resources in Internet. For the present, Russian experts in the humanities are not making extensive use of Internet resources, in part, for lack of information resources specialised in the field of humanistic knowledge which would help to find necessary information and/or to post materials in Internet. It is especially characteristic of philosophy. In this context, we have determined the following aspects of the present project:
The present project includes a section which can be classified as WWW-pages named "Directories", "Guides" or "Reference Lists". The authors do not think that the whole range of Internet philosophical resources has been covered by the present project - a number of thorough directories are available which does not need to be duplicated in the Russian language. The task of this site is to reflect that spectrum of possibilities which Internet opens to philosophers and also to prepare the way for further travel to WWW by means of hyperlinks.
One of the sections of our directory is devoted to Russian philosophical resources and can be
used by foreign researchers who will need information about Russian philosophy, Russian philosophers
and philosophical institutes of the Russian Federation.
You can see the English version of this directory on the page:
To the extent of the second aspect, we think to post materials given by philosophical institutes, groups and individual researchers.
The structure of the Russian pages of the project is as follows:
We hope that the present project will be useful for a wide range of people dealing with philosophy. The authors believe that this project will help not only Russian philosophers to find necessary information in Internet but it will also help foreign researchers to find information about Russian philosophical resources. The authors thank those who have created philosophical resources in Internet, whose sites have been included in the present list of references and hope that the project will find approval and support. All forms of "feedback" are welcome. Every message (new links, comments and remarks) will be considered favourably.
