“[T]his journal is unique in contemporary philosophy. It provides a place where ideas that follow no one school or doctrine can appear on the fundamental and traditional questions of philosophy. In my view it keeps alive what real philosophy is all about.” —Donald Phillip Verene, Emory University

“[T]he premier place for systematic philosophic essays in the United States.” —Robert C. Neville, Boston University

The Journal of Speculative Philosophy publishes systematic and interpretive essays about basic philosophical questions. Scholars examine the constructive interaction between Continental and American philosophy, as well as novel developments in the ideas and theories of past philosophers that have relevance for contemporary thinkers. The journal also features discussions of art, religion, and literature that are not strictly or narrowly philosophical.
