The IESBS aims to be the most comprehensive and up-to-date resource covering a variety of topics in the social and behavioral sciences. It covers a wide variety of topics in the areas of mind, cognition, perception, and the like that are relevant to philosophy. The material contained in the IESBS tends to reflect current trends and research in the social sciences. However, this sometimes means that articles carry a certain bias or slant towards the more favored current theories, and may not treat a topic as fully or as objectively as might be expected. Nevertheless, IESBS articles are signed, dated, updated often, and contain references and links to further resources. The user can retrieve articles by summary, HTML full-text, and in PDF format.
