Since compatibilism is a concept discussed in philosophy, religion, and ethics, a good place to begin your search would be three of our EBSCO databases: Academic Search Premier, ATLA (American Theological Library Association), and Philosopher's Index. This can be cross-searched simultaneously. A simple search for your term produced 2,251 results. Some are available full-text in these databases, some can be linked to full-text in other databases using the "360 Link" tool at the bottom of those results. If not part of our full-text collections, the article can be requested via ILLiad (interlibrary loan).

Other useful databases for your topic include:

  • Academic OneFile
  • Project Muse

To better focus your search, you may find useful background articles available in our online reference collection, Literati by Credo. These can help you develop additional search terms. The Search Limiters suggested in the various databases can also direct you to specific topics of interest.

You are welcome to telephone our reference librarians (203-371-7726) or visit the library for additional assistance with your search.  Check the detailed schedule of library hours at; pay particular attention to variations due to holidays and semester breaks.
