CfE Library


Our library, primarily focused on Anglophone ethics, is an integral part of the Centre for Ethics. With 9000 different registered items, it is situated on the first floor in building G at the University of Pardubice campus. 

The majority of our collection covers the following fields: moral philosophy, political philosophy, applied ethics and ancient ethics. Special attention in the collection is paid to topics such as justice, rights, love, emotions, punishment, forgiveness, concept of evil, mental illness, hope, free will, and consequentialism. 

The CE Library also orders physical copies of the most important ethical journals, for example Ethics, Journal of Ethics, Journal of Moral Philosophy, Ethical Theory and Moral Practice, Philosophy and Literature, Journal of Value Inquiry, The Journal of Philosophy, European Journal of Political Theory, or Philosophical Investigations.

While practical philosophy represents the main field of interest, other disciplines within philosophy are represented too, notably philosophy of religion, philosophical psychology, philosophy of language, philosophy of mind, philosophy of science and philosophical anthropology.

The majority of books are in English, still a significant number of books are available in other world languages, including German, French. Students may also find relevant texts in Czech language.

The items are also registered in the Pardubice university electronic catalogue (
