The Philosophers’ Magazine (TPM) is devoted to publishing philosophy that’s clear, enlightening, thought-provoking and even entertaining. The contributors are professional philosophers, many of international standing, who take care to make themselves understood. TPM is edited by the philosopher and writer, James Garvey.
Our recent contributors include Simon Blackburn, Mary Midgley, Peter Unger, David Benatar, Ernest Lepore, Havi Carel, Holmes Rolston III, Nicholas Rescher, Annette Baier, Brad Hooker, Ernest Sosa, Duncan Pritchard, Sarah Bakewell, Stephen Stich, Jennifer Saul, Paul Snowdon, Michael Ruse, Simon Critchley, Barry Stroud, Jonathan Ree, David Papineau, Helen Beebee, and Ray Monk. We have published interviews with Kwame Anthony Appiah, Ronald Dworkin, Martha Nussbaum, Peter Hacker, Kit Fine, Elliott Sober, Frank Jackson, Patricia Churchland, Richard Sorabji, Christine Korsgaard, David Chalmers and Rae Langton.
Each issue features a themed forum, with several philosophers weighing in on such things as embodied cognition, experimental philosophy, Chinese philosophy, moral luck, the meaning of life, religion and human enhancement. There’s also philosophy news, book and film reviews, and features on all things philosophical.
TPM is read by those who want a philosophical perspective on the world and our place in it, who appreciate depth, clarity, and good philosophical writing.
In this issue, we get to grips with arguments for the existence of God, why you should love bad art, what it means to be born, and whether mothers should let their children be stung by wasps. Plus Quassim Cassam on intellectual vices, columns, news, reviews and robots.
