Philosophical Topics


Recent and Forthcoming Issues

Our semi-annual journal is published by the University of Arkansas Department of Philosophy.

Philosophical Topics publishes contributions to all areas of philosophy, each issue being devoted to the problems in one area. Recent issues have been concerned with individuation, introspection, and free will.

“Philosophical Topics has evolved from a regional journal into a publication featuring invited papers, many of which are authored by leading scholars on an international level.”
