Philosophers

Philosophers' Works

When classifying philosphy, check the Philosophers' List to determine if a number has already been established for the individual philosopher.

Biography or Criticism

A note on classifying biography or criticism of philosophers (books about individual philosophers or their works):

A criticism or biography of an individual philosopher is classed in the 180’s or 190’s as appropriate:

  1. Cutter from the philosopher, using the established number from the Philosophers' List, if one exists
  2. Add a capital “Y” to signify a work about the philosopher
  3. Add a workmark from the name of the critic or biographer.

Within Philosophy, the “ Y” indicates either Critical or Biographical works. This is done regardless of how many works have been established at this number. However, to ensure that books are collocated correctly, see the Philosophers' List to find numbers which have already been established.

A biography or criticism of two or more philosophers is classified in the 190’s (or elsewhere in the 100’s if more appropriate), and cuttered from the name of the critic or biographer; add a workmark from the title.
