REP Online offers free access, for a limited period, to articles that mark notable philosophical anniversaries, events and publications. This month we have selected five articles to mark the 200th anniversary of the publication of Arthur Schopenhauer’s The World As Will and Representation (1818).

The best place to start is with Christopher Janaway’s entry on Schopenhauer. Robert Stern’s overview article Nineteenth-Century Philosophy is also helpful background whilst the articles on Wagner, Richard; German Idealism and Nietzsche, Friedrich provide further useful reading. Those interested in bringing their reading of German philosophy up to date will find the forthcoming Routledge book German Philosophy in the Twentieth Century, by Julian Young, extremely helpful.



REP Online's playlists are guest-edited selections of articles to help guide the user through the many themes and topics within the encyclopedia.

Tim Crane's Introduction to Philosophy is the perfect starting point for readers new to REP. Read Louise Richardson's guide to the many philosophical aspects of Emotions, Kok-Chor Tan on Global Justice, Heather Logue on Perception and James Harris on Scottish philosophy 


The Routledge Encyclopedia of Philosophy was reviewed by Choice as a Highly recommended publication in their March 2018 issue!

We have also recently released a content update with articles on metaphysics; epistemology; philosophy of the mind and psychology; early modern philosophy; and twentieth century philosophy.
