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

We are excited to announce that Aletheia: Texas A&M’s Undergraduate Journal of Philosophy has released its Spring 2021 edition. In this issue of Aletheia, you will find papers written by undergraduate scholars from not just A&M, but across the United States. These papers take a critical look into matters such as the exploitation of nature by humans, Aristotle’s misogyny, culpability for collective action failures, the problem of meaningless suffering, and Heidegger’s analysis of death. If you are looking for some light philosophy reading over the summer then this is a great resource!

Call for Papers – Submission Deadline: October 31, 2022
