This page is intended to provide resources and links for researchers and students in the various areas of continental philosophy. The list started with links culled from Peter Suber's excellent (and lamented) "Guide to Philosophy on the Internet", but has gone beyond that. If anyone has suggestions for additional links, please contact me at the email address at the bottom of the page.

The term "Continental" philosophy is problematic (which continent?), but there are few other collective terms that describe the traditions and conversations listed here.

For general searches on all topics on this page, the Google Search Engine is probably the best:
