The Journal of Public Philosophy is the official publication of the Public Philosophy Society. The goal of the Journal is to publish papers, essays, and book reviews in the mode of classical philosophy. We seek to know the basic truths that are foundational for the common good and for a just and civil society.

The goal of public philosophy is to make the practice of philosophy more accessible and more relevant to students, scholars, and the broadly educated public. We hope to inspire young and old alike in the shared, rational pursuit of wisdom and in love of Being, Unity, the True, the Good, and the Beautiful.

The Public Philosophy Society is a professional society, offering membership to students, scholars, and educated members of the public. For more information about joining the Society, visit our membership site:
