Resource: Great Thinkers

Great Thinkers is a web project dedicated to introducing readers to the great thinkers of Western thought, with a particular emphasis on political philosophy. Featuring biographies, introductory essays, bibliographies of the best secondary literature, as well as multimedia content on thinkers from Herodotus to Plato to Nietzsche to Mill, the site seeks to aid students and other interested parties in their study of the most fundamental ideas, texts, and thinkers of the tradition. The project hopes to stimulate the kind of serious reading and reflection that is the prerequisite for free government and the highest form of liberal education.
