Author Guidelines

Note to Contributors:

Philosophy and Literature welcomes appropriate contributions. These may include philosophical interpretations of literature, literary investigations of classic works of philosophy, articles on the aesthetics of poetry and fiction, philosophy of mind or language relevant to literature, literature and empirical sciences, including recent psychology (such as cognitive or evolutionary psychology), and theory of criticism. Where we believe our readers' interests might be served, we are also willing to consider articles in broader areas of philosophy, aesthetics, politics, the sciences, culture, and the humanities.

Although Philosophy and Literature owes allegiance to no particular school or style of criticism or philosophy, its editors prefer contributions free of jargon or needless technicality. Clarity is one of our ideals.

Full information on manuscript specifications, which are strictly according to recent editions of The Chicago Manual of Style, can be found on the Philosophy and Literature style sheet. Notes, which should be kept to a minimum, must appear as run-on text at the end of the manuscript; do not embed them in the text.

Articles, which normally should not exceed 6500 words, must be submitted as email attachments (in MSWord, without ZIP compression). Please include a 100-word abstract. Address submissions and questions to:
