Celebrating 50 Years of Professional Service

Thank you for your continuing support of our work!

The Philosophy Documentation Center has served the philosophical community on a non-profit basis since 1966. We now host over 200 journals, series, conference proceedings, and other publications. We manage memberships for two dozen organizations and support essential projects such as PhilPapers, the Stanford Enclyclopedia of Philosophy, and TeachPhilosophy101. And we provide listings for 31,000 philosophers in the online International Directory of Philosophy. We continue to grow and everyone in the profession has contributed to our success.

To express our thanks we have made all volumes of the Philosophy Research Archives freely available online. This publication was established in 1975 by PDC, the APA and the Canadian Philosophical Association, in cooperation with the American Council of Learned Societies and the Humanities Research Council of Canada.

Ten lucky colleagues have also received free access to this great philosophy collection for an entire year:

  • World Congress of Philosophy Collection (150+ volumes, 1900-2015). Includes all proceedings published after the World Congresses in Austria, Belgium, Canada, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Korea, Mexico, The Netherlands, Turkey, the U.S. and other countries.

  • The American Philosophical Association Centennial Series (11 volumes, 1901-2000). Includes major addresses by John Dewey, Carl Hempel, William James, Herbert Marcuse, John Rawls, Hans Reichenbach, Richard Rorty, Gregory Vlastos, and other prominent philosophers.

  • Journal of Philosophical Research (30+ volumes, 1990-present). Includes supplements published in cooperation with the International Federation of Philosophical Societies and the APA.

We will continue to increase access to philosophy collections and expand our work for professional associations.
