  • Primary Documents- famous works by the philosopher, letters written to other philosophers, etc.
  • Secondary analysis of your philosopher's works by historians and scholars

You will find these types of information in: 

  • Library Books

  • Google Books
    • most of the works will be in the Public Domain, meaning they are free to read online
  • Academic Journals
    • these resources can be found in EbscoHost, JSTOR, and Gale World History
