Resources for philosophy

The link attached below contains resources to different areas of philosophy. https://docs.google.com/document/d/1ZBcKiLo98JVmFzBhPIiduBmkVW_Fz7gf7...
This will give you a general idea about the important topics in each area of philosophy and will help you to train for the Baltic Sea event. I have not put up resources for all the areas now. I will keep on updating the document and inform you like-wise.
As these links will only give you a general idea, it will always be better if you read from other resources as well.
The Baltic Sea event will be conducted as scheduled- on 4th Nov. Topics will be disclosed only on 4th. Abhinav students are to come to the school premises to write the essay at on 4th at 9am.
Others who are interested will have to be online. The essay topics will be e-mailed to them on the 4th at 9, and they are to write the essay and email it back. For further queries please contact Kedar Soni (soni.ke...@gmail.com).
You may post whatever doubts you may have.. All the best!!

About the Indian Philosophy Olympiad

I am currently trying to shift base to an internal discussion group and a seperate website for conducting the assignments and delivering info and news about the Olympiad and other activities related to Philosophy, which we will undertake here at Abhinav. The location for further info would be http://philo.abhinav.ac.in/. However to keep the line open, I will keep repeating the info on this blog for a long time to come. So feel free to view either site for news. Detail info will however be posted / connected on the proper site (as given above). Discussions within students and mentors will be conducted exclusively on the discussion group - https://groups.google.com/a/abhinav.ac.in/group/philosophy/topics. So do join it. (by sending me a mail at director@abhinav.ac.in or the group address - philosophy@abhinav.ac.in)
Competition overview and task sheets for the first stage will be simultaneously put up at the above website as well as http://abhinav.ac.in/dov/stimulus/philosopher.htm.
