The Bibliothèque’s philosophy collection is mainly focused on Western philosophy. The texts and studies of Greek and Roman philosophy and the philosophy of the 16th and 18th centuries are the strong points of this collection.
Still other domains like the history of science and travel narratives are likewise a strong presence in the collections.
And finally, the Bibliothèque de Genève’s different branch sites are true reference centers in and of themselves.
The Musée Voltaire for the Enlightenment
The Centre d’Iconographie for Geneva’s picture heritage
The Bibliothèque Musicale for sheet music
