Philosophical Studies provides a periodical dedicated to work in analytic philosophy. The journal is devoted to the publication of papers in exclusively analytic philosophy, and welcomes papers applying formal techniques to philosophical problems. The principal aim is to publish articles that are models of clarity and precision in dealing with significant philosophical issues. The readers of the journal will be kept abreast of the central issues and problems of contemporary analytic philosophy.

Philosophical Studies was founded in 1950 by Herbert Feigl and Wilfrid Sellars.

    As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times.  Please do let us know if you need additional time.
