Ms. Parsekhian’s Philosophy class is coming in to refresh their memories of the basics of using Chicago style of Citation.


You’re now all experts (right?) in terms of creating a Bibliography. Congratulations. That’s no small feat.

The next step is to master the Footnote.

While a Bibliography provides your reader with a list of every resource you utilized, a Footnote shows from where every piece of research originated. 

These footnotes should correspond with what you find in the Bibliography.


Remember to look to OWL @ Purdue for other questions that arise about citation. It’s where Ms. Kelso or Ms. Vilicic go when we’re looking for information about citation.

Look at this slide show for basics on how/where/when to use the Footnotes.

In terms of research, the following databases as well as the Virtual Library are a good start.

Here are some links to primary sources that you might find useful:

Classical and Medieval Sources of Natural Law

Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy

Fordham University’s Modern History Sourcebook
