Focus and Scope

The Journal of Living Philosophy (JLP) aims to provide a venue for the publication of articles in any area of philosophy, in which authors make philosophy relevant to life. The JLP grounding assumptions include is that philosophy is deeply embedded in life and should not be held separate, as only an academic undertaking. The Journal welcomes articles that touch on a wide array of human experiences, including (but not limited to): emotional life, intellectual life, the body, the mind, community, and individuality. It also welcomes works that engage various contexts of human thought and experience such as culture, art, music, mathematics, science, education, literature, history, commerce, medicine, law and religion. Authors at any stage of their careers are encouraged to submit strong papers for review.

Peer Review Process

3. Authors are responsible for preparing their work for blind review and following formatting guidelines listed in the "Submission Preparation Checklist."
