Outlines of philosophy[edit]

An outline is an organized list of topics covered in an area. Each outline shows the structure of its subject and serves as a table of contents to its coverage on Wikipedia.

Timelines are lists of articles organized chronologically.


A glossary page presents definitions for specialized terms in a subject area. Glossaries contain a small working vocabulary and definitions for important or frequently encountered concepts, usually including idioms or metaphors useful in a subject area.


Categories can be used by readers to find sets of articles on related topics. Categories can also be defined as subcategories of other categories.

  • Categorical index – an index of major categories, arranged by subject – that section of the page is an exception to the category autogeneration rule, as it is crafted by hand.
  • Category:Philosophy—the highest level or "root" category for philosophy in Wikipedia – its autogenerated entries are listed at the bottom of the page.
