Philosophical Connections CD-ROM

Compiled by Anthony Harrison-Barbet

"There is no other work in which the connections
of ideas are so clearly set out — who influenced
and was influenced by whom, and concerning what.
...This book should be seen as a kind of vade mecum
which will help the curious to get to grips with
philosophical issues by learning something about
their origins and the various solutions offered in
the past. It is a unique work of reference."


"At over 350,000 words, Philosophical Connections is not only a valuable study aid but a significant contribution to the study of the history of philosophy. This work, which took several years to complete by a team at Trinity College Dublin, has to my knowledge never before been attempted on such a large and intricate scale.

"A beginner's first impressions of the e-text are somewhat daunting. However, with the help of author's How to use the profiles, one soon gets the hang of the unique scheme of interconnecting links. The information is incredibly condensed. One could write a paper about each line on each of the many tables of interconnections, or spend hours searching on the internet to find the same information.

"Reading Philosophical Connections is not a substitute for studying the original texts. What it does is stimulate you to ask questions and follow leads which you might otherwise never have considered. I will be making extensive use of this resource in mentoring students taking Pathways programs and the University of London Diploma and BA in Philosophy."
