Philosophy

We aim to capture the excitement and vivacity of philosophy as it is taught and studied within philosophy departments, and as an increasingly integral facet of other subjects in the arts, humanities and social sciences. Covering ancient, medieval, modern and contemporary eras, our rapidly-expanding list encompasses the rich philosophical traditions of the Eastern and Western worlds, and engages with both continental and analytic schools of thought. We welcome books which provide scholars, students and general readers with cutting-edge scholarship, essential resources and engagingly-written, provocative new perspectives on this dynamic, discursive discipline.
