  • Send articles by e-mail to phil-review@cornell.edu. In the e-mail, include the title of the article, the author's name and postal address, and the author's institutional affiliation. If submitting a paper manuscript, send only one copy to Philosophical Review, Cornell University, 217 Goldwin Smith Hall, Ithaca, NY 14853-4601. The manuscript will not be returned unless accompanied by a postage-paid envelope. We greatly prefer submissions via e-mail. Please do not submit a paper both in hard copy and as an e-mail submission.

    Manuscripts must not have been published previously, in part or in whole, or be under consideration for publication elsewhere. Neither the author's name nor the author's affiliation should be included in the manuscript, and any acknowledgments or references to the author's own work should not reveal the author's identity. Any prefatory or explanatory remarks intended for the editors or readers should brief and should be in the email and not part of the submitted manuscript, so that they may be kept anonymous by the editorial office.

    For more information about the submission process, please see our editorial policies for authors.

    Double-space all text, including extracts and notes; all pages must be numbered and have margins of at least one inch on all sides. Please use a 12-point font size. We accept papers in Word, PDF, and RTF; we do not currently accept documents submitted in LaTeX. There is no set maximum for paper length; however, authors are generally discouraged from submitting papers that exceed sixty double-spaced pages. Manuscripts chosen for publication must eventually conform to The Chicago Manual of Style, sixteenth edition, but for the initial review any clear and consistent citation style is acceptable.

    Book reviews: Unsolicited book reviews are not accepted. Publishers and authors may send books to be considered for review to Book Review Editor, Philosophical Review, Cornell University, 217 Goldwin Smith Hall, Ithaca, NY 14853-4601. The Philosophical Review generally does not respond to publisher or author inquiries about books for possible review, nor do we generally solicit specific books for review.

  • Description

    “No philosophy journal published in English is more highly regarded than the Philosophical Review.”
    —David Sanford, Duke University

    In continuous publication since 1892, the Philosophical Review has a long-standing reputation for excellence and has published many papers now considered classics in the field, such as W. V. O. Quine's “Two Dogmas of Empiricism,” Thomas Nagel's “What Is It Like to Be a Bat?” and the early work of John Rawls. The journal aims to publish original scholarly work in all areas of analytic philosophy, with an emphasis on material of general interest to academic philosophers, and is one of the few journals in the discipline to publish book reviews.
