Introduction to Philosophy (Resources)

In a previous post, I detailed some of the resources that I found helpful starting out in philosophy. The main aim of that specific post was to help guide the “absolute beginner”. In what follows I provide a few additional resources (by no means an exhaustive list!) that you’ll find useful once you have some understanding of the basics of the subject.
