The philosopher Wilfrid Sellars characterized the aim of philosophy as the effort “to understand how things in the broadest possible sense of the term hang together in the broadest possible sense of the term.” Animated by a similar purpose, the philosophy list publishes widely across the field topically and historically, in order to provide the broadest possible understanding of the world and how to live wisely within it.

With strengths in the history of philosophy and moral and political philosophy, we publish books that reach into adjacent fields and we seek to engage general readers in search of the wisdom philosophy has to offer.
