Philosophy: Home

Philosophy training teaches students how to think, especially about the most fundamental questions.

Welcome!

Welcome to the Philosophy Research Guide! The resources listed in this guide are freely available to current RCBC students.

Here at RCBC we believe in guaranteeing easily accessible, affordable content to benefit the learning experience of our students, enriching them academically, and professionally, in their chosen career path.

Think of a Lib Guide as a digital filing cabinet, full of tools that can do everything from enhance supplementary instruction to provide relevant, topical resources that will benefit a student’s prospective job hunt and professional development well beyond the classroom.

Lib Guides are part of a grant-funded RCBC initiative pertaining to freely available Open Educational Resources (OERs), which aim to change higher education into a comprehensive and diverse experience that works to serve students and ensure success is always within their reach.

Philosophy-based OERs consist of the Project Gutenberg Philosophy Bookshelf, downloadable textbooks on a smattering of sub-topics in the field, subject videos from such comprehensive websites as TED ED, Khan Academy, and Coursera, as well as a smattering of philosophical encyclopedias at your digital disposal.
