The Monist

An International Quarterly Journal of General Philosophical Inquiry

Barry Smith, Editor

The Monist publishes thematic issues on particular philosophical topics and each issue is a collected anthology of continuing interest. It is one of the oldest academic journals in the world, and has achieved international recognition as one of leading philosophy journals in the English language.

The journal was established in 1888 as a quarterly journal of the philosophy of science. Its first editor was Paul Carus, who received his Ph.D. in philosophy and classical philology from the University of Tübingen in 1876. Publication of The Monist was suspended from 1936 to 1962, and since its revival the journal has continued to publish quarterly without interruption. Published contributors include John Cottingham, Daniel Dennett, Jon Elster, Clark Glymour, Jaakko Hintikka, Ted Honderich, Colin McGinn, Martha Nussbaum, David Papineau, Hilary Putnam, Nicholas Rescher, Wesley Salmon, Sydney Shoemaker, and Peter Singer.
