Philosophy: Find Books & eBooks


Philosophy Call Numbers

All books in the library have a call number, which is like an address that tells you where they are located. You can find philosophy books at call number B, at both the Waterfront Plaza Library and at Atherton Library. Call number B is divided as follows:

  • B - Philosophy (General)
  • BC - Logic
  • BD - Speculative philosophy
  • BF - Psychology
  • BH - Aesthetics
  • BJ - Ethics
  • BL - BX - Religion

You can also explore the Library of Congress Call Number B Outline to narrow in on more specific aspects of philosophy, and then browse these sections in the stacks.
