Philosophy and Public Affairs Readers
Charles R. Beitz, Editor
Issues of public concern often have an important philosophical dimension. Philosophy & Public Affairs was founded in the belief that a philosophical examination of these issues can contribute to their clarification. The journal is designed to fill the need for a periodical in which philosophers and philosophically inclined writers from various disciplines--including law, political science, economics, and sociology--can bring their distinctive methods to bear on problems that concern everyone.
