The library is the University’s main provider for loans in philosophy to undergraduates, graduate students and senior members. The collection covers the history of philosophy from ancient times to the present, with extensive holdings in aesthetics, epistemology, ethics, gender studies, logic, metaphysics, philosophy of language, philosophy of law, philosophy of mathematics, philosophy of mind, philosophy of psychology, philosophy of religion, philosophy of science and political and social philosophy.
The library has a collection of offprints: mostly small pamphlet versions of articles or lectures by past members of the Philosophy Faculty, from the 1920s onwards. These are available for reference use by any library member. If an item is of interest to you, please ask for it at the library reception.
Some offprints are searchable on SOLO, but not all. You can view a PDF catalogue of our offprints that includes details of items available online or in collections of essays which you can borrow from the library.
