Important Texts in Philosophy

These pages explore Wikipedia articles linked to from the page "List of Important Works in Philosophy". The list of pages is predominantly euro-centric, but does contain a decent number of texts for Eastern Philosophers, primarily related to religions sources. Prominent examples include clusters on Hindu Philosophy and Japanese Buddhism.

I originally thought the clusters would separate people, texts, and ideas. However, most of the clusters do a good job of linking people directly together with their primary fields of study. The Social Philosophy cluster links together Jean-Jacques Rousseau and the two pages about the Social contract. Wollstonecraft, and Simone de Beauvoir are all connected in the Feminism cluster along with their respective texts A Vindication of the Rights of Woman and The Second Sex. For the major critical theorist movements, Marxism is very well distinguished but the pages on Structuralism, Deconstruction, and subfields of Cultural Studies are mostly lumped into two meta-groups (or entirely absent, owing to a certain bias on the originating page). This represents the general separation between philosophy and critical theory from the second-half of the 20th century.
