Aletheia, The Undergraduate Journal of Philosophy at Texas A&M

Texas A&M University is proud to release the Spring 2020 edition of its undergraduate journal of philosophy, Aletheia. The journal had been inactive since 2014, but student leadership organized to re-launch this publication within the Philosophy Department in Spring 2018. The journal serves as a platform for the excellent work of Texas A&M’s own students, and this edition contains articles from undergraduates within multiple academic disciplines. The Editorial Board and the Philosophy Department hope that this edition marks the beginning of a new tradition of undergraduate scholarship at Texas A&M University.
