||This site aims to do two things. First, it lists texts in various areas of philosophy, sorted by importance as measured by citations, and by number of inclusions in anthologies. The aim here is to answer questions like, "What are the ten or twenty most important texts in all of philosophy, or about ethics, or about Consequentialism? If I've read all of those, what are the next most important?"
Second, it provides hierarchical summaries of some of these texts. For example, Derek Parfit's On What Matters is divided into parts, which are divided into chapters, which are divided into sections. A summary of the whole book is listed on the normative ethics page. This summary links to summaries of each of the parts, which link to summaries of each of the chapters, which link to summaries of each of the sections. The aim here is to enable users to quickly get a sense of what the major texts in some area say, and drill down to find particular parts of a text that might be of interest. Submissions welcome!
