“I chose to endow an experiential learning fellowship in honor of my parents, because even though neither of them went beyond high school, they valued learning and knew its importance for success.  My father was a self-made man in the old model but believed that learning/research and experience were both necessary to make either one viable.  I also believe that the opportunity to travel to study a topic or problem–as I did as a French major at Case Western Reserve–is one of the best forms of education for a student.”

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS

 


 

Stance: An International Undergraduate Philosophy Journal is produced and edited entirely by undergraduate students. We aim to enrich student learning by providing an opportunity for undergraduate students to have their original scholarly work reviewed by or published in a peer-reviewed academic journal.

Episteme is a student-run journal that aims to recognize and encourage excellence in undergraduate philosophy by providing examples of some of the best work currently being done in undergraduate philosophy programs. Episteme is published under the auspices of Denison University’s Department of Philosophy. We publish a journal in print each Spring. We are proud to announce the twenty-seventh volume of Episteme, which you can download from Episteme’s website. Specially requested print editions have been shipped. This year’s submissions spanned a diverse body of philosophical literature from philosophy of feminism to Kripke’s philosophy of language, and they included authors as far-flung from as the Kyoto University. We hope that an even broader host of students are encouraged to participate in the next volume.

Discussions is an undergraduate run, peer-reviewed research journal that publishes undergraduate research in all fields of study. Discussions publishes several times every year.

Lex Modestum is a student run undergraduate philosophy journal dedicated to providing opportunities to aspiring philosophers. We accept original philosophical works from undergraduate students in both Analytic and Continental strains of thought. Along with the traditional essay format, we are also interested in presenting unique philosophical ideas via original modes of presentation (e.g. dialogues, poems, artwork, and short stories).
