Journal Description


Basic information


Founded in 1888 by Edward C. Hegeler, The Monist is one of the world’s oldest and most important journals in philosophy. It helped to professionalize philosophy as an academic discipline in the United States by publishing philosophers such as Lewis White Beck, John Dewey, Gottlob Frege, Hans-Georg Gadamer, Sidney Hook, C.I. Lewis, Ernst Mach, Charles Sanders Peirce, Hilary Putnam, Willard Van Orman Quine, Bertrand Russell, and Gregory Vlastos. The Monist publishes quarterly thematic issues on particular philosophical topics which are edited by leading philosophers in these areas of thought. As a result, each issue is a collected anthology of continuing interest.

The Hegeler-Carus mansion in La Salle, Illinois, pictured above, is a national historic landmark. It was the hub of intellectual thought and cultural activity during the early decades of The Monist and Open Court Publishing Company.
