Bloomsbury Philosophy Library - Bloomsbury Encyclopedia of Philosopher

Bloomsbury Encyclopedia of Philosophers has been migrated to Bloomsbury Philosophy Library

In April 2021, Bloomsbury Digital Resource launched Bloomsbury Philosophy Library, a growing digital hub that will provides access to primary texts in translation, secondary literature, exclusive articles, and encyclopedia entries. Bloomsbury Encyclopedia of Philosophers has been migrated onto Bloomsbury Philosophy Library.

Bloomsbury Philosophy Library will have three collections on the platform at launch - Bloomsbury Encyclopedia of Philosophers, Bloomsbury 20th-Century French Thought and Bloomsbury History of Modern Aesthetics

What will be different on Bloomsbury Philosophy Library as opposed to the old Bloomsbury Encyclopedia of Philosophers website?

Bloomsbury Philosophy Library hosts three collections, as stated above. This means content outside of Bloomsbury Encyclopedia of Philosophers will also be on the platform. While content may appear on the site, users will only have access to the collection that they have subscribed to or purchased.

Are institutions able to renew their subscription to Bloomsbury Encyclopedia of Philosophers?

Yes, Bloomsbury Encyclopedia of Philosophers will still be available to purchase via subscription or perpetual access basis.
