Please note that any scholar in philosophy would do well to begin with the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy (SEP). Entries are written and reviewed by leading scholars in their respective fields; the extensive bibliography attached to each entry is particularly useful.

The SEP will get you started. By far the most important resource, however, is the Philosophers' Index. It is provided online through the library. Go to this link and select "Sociology, Psych," from "Quicksets". Then select "Philosophers' Index". Don't confuse the Philosophers' Index with the index of Philosophy and Religion. There really is no comparison.
