On World Philosophy Day we take a look at the books, journals and videos on this field of knowledge.

In times of great uncertainty, philosophy, meaning "love of wisdom", can help direct our search for answers to major contemporary challenges.

You can search content directly via the Library's search engine or browse the content platforms specialized in arts and humanities.

These resources may prove useful whether you're looking for an introduction to the main philosophical questions or you study them.
