Hippias: Limited Area Search of Philosophy on the Internet

Provided by Evansville University as a companion LASE (Limited Area Search Engine) to its Argos search engine (discussed in the November 1, 1996 Scout Report), Hippias is "a peer-reviewed search engine that provides access to philosophy-related resources on the [web]." Edited by Peter Suber of Earlham College (maintainer of one of the best known philosophy meta-pages on the Internet), Hippias searches seven major philosophy meta-sites, including Andrew Carpenter's Course Materials in Philosophy, David Chalmers' Philosophy Resources, and James Fieser's Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy. The power of a LASE is that it allows concentrated searching of known quality resources, rather than general searching of all resources in a given field.
