Philosophy

The journal Philosophy, edited by Anthony O’Hear, is published quarterly by the Cambridge University Press and sent to all members of the Institute. It includes articles, discussions and book reviews by contributors who take care to make themselves understood to the serious non-specialist reader. Over two and a half thousand individuals and libraries all over the world subscribe to the journal.

For more than 85 years Philosophy has featured the work of both established scholars and rising stars. Philosophy‘s international standing enables it to attract articles of the highest quality from around the world.
