Primary or Secondary Source, or Both?

Philosophy & Religion Sources

" In philosophy and religion, your main primary source is usually the text you are studying, and your data are the words on the page. In such fields you can rarely write a research paper without using primary sources."
(Wayne C. Booth et al. The Craft of Research. Univ. of Chicago Press, 2008)
