    The Stanford Philosophy Encyclopedia is always worth a mention, it's one of the better sources of very well written, clear expositions of the basics and more advanced material on each key philosopher.

    The IEP is also good, thought not of the same quality as the one you mentioned:

    I have read some interesting passages of his biography and I'm impress more than before. He was not just an all-rounder, he was a genius and the revolutionary of Philosophy. I stick to it and admire what he done to his lifetimes.

    I love how he left Cambridge to try and become a miner in the USSR, only to get turned rejected at the border.

    Mind if I join up for this group reading I don't study philosophy but i like to take a little interest!

    I studied a module on the theory of knowledge last year at university and I have to say it was really interesting. I can't say i'm very knowledgeable on the works that Wittgenstein did but I remember in class we brushed over his private language argument, it took me a while to fully understand at what he was getting at.
