Philosophy Today

An International Journal of Contemporary Philosophy 

Philosophy Today is an international peer-reviewed journal that reflects the current questions, topics and debates of contemporary philosophy, with a particular focus on continental philosophy. The journal is especially interested in original work at the intersection of philosophy, political theory, comparative literature, and cultural studies. It seeks to provoke discussion and debate among various intellectual traditions, including critical theory, phenomenology, hermeneutics, feminism, and psychoanalysis. The journal provides space for reviews, as well as short translations of the works of contemporary philosophical figures originally published in other languages. 

The journal is now published by the department in cooperation with the Philosophy Documentation Center.  Submission guidelines can be found at the Philosophy Documentation Center website.  Print, online, and print + online subscription options are now available. All back issues are being digitized and will be included in online access options.

Non-subscribers may search the journal and view free previews of each article. E-mail updates and RSS feeds are also freely available.

The journal will soon provide Wikipedia and Facebook pages - keep an eye on this site for more information.
