PhilPapers' history and support
搞逼视频,男女搞j视频网站 PhilPapers was initially developed (2006-09) by David Bourget and David Chalmers at the Centre for Consciousness at the Australian National University. The site and the technology behind it started off as , which was developed during the years 2006-2007.

Many improvements were made to the software, which was released independently as an open source package called .
Since mid-2013, PhilPapers has a new home at the headed by David Bourget at the University of Western Ontario. The Centre has received limited short-term support from Western Ontario, the American Philosophical Association, and the Institute of Philosophy.
