“History of Philosophy Books in Three Minutes” (HPBin3) is an online platform for brief three-minute video presentations of books in the History of Philosophy. Presentations take the form of short videos filmed by the authors themselves where they explain what their book is about and why it is important.

Presentations can be about works in any language, but are presented in English or in French. Monographs, edited volumes, critical editions, special journal issues, book collections, and publication projects in the digital humanities are included. Works in intellectual history, history of science, political theory, or other, that include a significant philosophical component are also included.



HBPin3 was launched in september 2020 as a joint project between four institutions: Institut d’Histoire des Représentations et des Idées dans les Modernités (IHRIM)Maison Française d’Oxford (MFO)British Society for the History of Philosophy (BSHP) and Labex COMOD (University of Lyon).
