For websites and web-stuff, check out TED and Big Think.

For books, there is literally an unimaginable quantity of material. To take a ridiculously cursory handful, try Plato, Bede, Aquinas, Montaigne, Shakespeare, Blake, Dickens, Joyce, Greene and Rushdie. You will learn history and philosophy through the literature.
