Description:

“From its inception, the SEP (Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy) was designed so that each entry is maintained and kept up to date by an expert or group of experts in the field. All entries and substantive updates are refereed by the members of a distinguished Editorial Board before they are made public. Consequently, our dynamic reference work maintains academic standards while evolving and adapting in response to new research.”

Mission:

“The SEP project began in September 1995 when John Perry was the Director of the Center for the Study of Language and Information (CSLI). Perry’s suggestion that CSLI enhance its web presence by creating a (static) online dictionary of philosophy was taken up by Edward N. Zalta, who developed the idea into that of a dynamic reference work. Zalta then started designing the SEP to be an online encyclopedia that would satisfy the highest academic standards.”
