February 25, 2005
February 25, 2005, Greencastle, Ind. - Carl A. Huffman, professor of classical studies at DePauw University, has authored the entry on the ancient Greek philosopher, Pythagoras, in the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy. The premier encyclopedia of philosophy on the internet, the Stanford Encyclopedia is the most accessed resource by professors and students of philosophy in any medium.
The online encyclopedia is a dynamic reference work, in that the entries are constantly revised in order to make sure that the encyclopedia is up to date and authoritative. Since the articles are in digital form, they can go into much greater depth than articles in print encyclopedias and serve the needs of readers ranging from undergraduates to faculty. The average length for an article is some 10,000 words. All entries and updates are refereed by an editorial boards of leading scholars in the respective areas of philosophy. The editors for ancient philosophy come from Princeton, Oxford and Northwestern.
Dr. Huffman has earlier published three other entries in the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy on the Greek philosophers, Alcmaeon, Archytas and Philolaus. Access Professor Huffman’s article on Pythagoras by clicking here.Back
