The Great Thinkers
Great Thinkers is a web resource aimed at introducing the great thinkers of Western thought, with a particular emphasis on political philosophy. Featuring biographies, introduction, bibliographies of the best secondary literature as well as multimedia content on thinkers from Plato to Nietzsche, the site seeks to aid students and other interested parties in their study of the most fundamental ideas, texts, and thinkers of the tradition. With the aid of these resources, the project hopes to stimulate the kind of serious reading and reflection that are prerequisites for free government and the highest form of liberal education.
Great Thinkers currently features twenty-two sites devoted to political thinkers — including Plato, Aristotle, The Federalist, John Locke, Thomas Aquinas, Moses Maimonides, Shakespeare, and Alexis de Tocqueville, among others.
