Noesis: A Search Engine and Index for Academic Philosophy Across Disciplines

Noesis: Philosophical Research Online is an index and limited area search engine dedicated to open access, academic philosophy on the Internet. By limiting its search scope, Noesis effectively reduces search returns to reliable, academic content managed collectively by professional philosophers. Unlike many other resources in philosophy, Noesis overcomes traditional divisions that isolate the various conversations within the discipline and allows ideas to cross-fertilize. It thereby encourages the growth and development of knowledge within the profession. By sharing philosophical information in an organized way with potentially millions of users worldwide, Noesis also helps the profession bring philosophy to a broader audience. The purpose of this proposal is to ask the NEH for the means to develop this project further by allowing me to travel regularly from the University of Evansville to Indiana University, where digital resources are readily available.
