Welcome to 1000-Word Philosophy, an ever-growing set of original 1000-word essays on philosophical topics. Below is our current collection of essays. We publish a new essay every Monday and Thursday, so check back often for updates.
News Item: We’ve made the decision that during the summer, while academics are traveling and working to complete drafts of publications, we’ll publish just once a week, on Mondays. When the academic year resumes at the end of August, we’ll go back to publishing twice weekly.
