PhilPapers: Moving toward PhilPeople

PhilPapers: Moving toward PhilPeople. “In the coming months, we will launch PhilPeople, a new service from the PhilPapers Foundation developed with the support of the APA. PhilPeople will be a searchable database of philosophers. It will have an associated search engine that enables searches on a number of dimensions (e.g. by areas of specialization, location, and demographic features). PhilPeople will also provide a profile page to any philosopher who wants one, with links to their publications on PhilPapers. It will include social networking features. It will also include an associated database of academic departments of philosophy, with searchable information about each of these departments.”
