The philosophy department celebrated the release of their new philosophy journal, Philologoi, on Nov. 13. The name, meaning “love of reason,” is the name of the philosophy discussion group that meets each week.
Many of the students and faculty who were involved in the creation of the journal spoke during the release event and reflected on how the journal was brought to fruition. The process, from formulating the initial idea to the final publication, has been driven by students. The idea was first mentioned over a year ago, and the students and faculty of the philosophy department have worked to finally make the journal a reality. Submissions for the journal were received from a number of schools across the country, but few were accepted for admission into the final journal.
Those involved look forward to increasing the prestige and prominence of Philologoi in the future. Though a large number of applicants from a variety of schools did apply, the journal hopes that even more schools will be represented next year by a greater number of applicants, with even better quality of submissions.
