The International Directory of Philosophy is an online database containing information on university philosophy departments, research centers, professional societies, journals, and philosophy publishers in approximately 130 countries. It was established by the Philosophy Documentation Center in 2010 through the consolidation of the content of the Directory of American Philosophers and International Directory of Philosophy and Philosophers.[1] This database is notable as an extensive collection of edited information about contuing philosophical activity.

History

The Directory of American Philosophers is a print guide to various kinds of on-going philosophical activity in the US and Canada.[2] It contains edited listings for university and college philosophy programs, research centers, professional societies, philosophical journals, and publishers. Established in 1963 by Prof. Archie Bahm at the University of New Mexico, it has been published by the Philosophy Documentation Center since 1972. It is now in its 26th print edition (2012-2013).

The International Directory of Philosophy and Philosophers is a similar work established in 1965 under the auspices of the International Institute of Philosophy with the aid of UNESCO. The founding editors were Gilbert Varet (Centre de Documentation Philosophique - Université de Besançon), and Paul Kurtz (State University of New York at Buffalo). The first print edition was also known as the Repertoire international de la philosophie et des philosophes.[3] It has also been published by the Philosophy Documentation Center since the 1970s and is now in its 18th print edition (2013-2014).[4]

The update procedures and contacts originally established to support the publication of these print directories are now being used by Philosophy Documentation Center to support the production of the online International Directory of Philosophy.[5]
