Our latest issue is being printed right now and will be on its way to you soon! So we're ready to reveal that the theme of this issue is #Metaphysics! We'll take a look at philosophy’s oldest and most central strand and see whether it still has a place in philosophy today.

A pretty picture?

Mihail Evans asks what it means to represent. If Trump now represents the people of America, what exactly does that mean? philosophynow.org/issues/116/Aesthetic_Democracy

Sadly, Derek Parfit passed away on January 1st. Parfit was a British philosopher who specialised in problems of personal identity, rationality and ethics. His book 'Reasons and Persons' has been very influential in moral philosophy and will continue to be for many years to come.

Sorry to hear. Have read only bits of his work and secondary comments. Time to go a little deeper

With reports that anxiety is on the increase, could a return to stoicism be the answer?

Stoicisim – the 2,300-year-old philosophy based on enduring hardship – is being rebranded for the 21st century and gaining traction as a modern-day life hack.

"If mind is matter in the form of brains, then equally, matter in the form of brains, is mind." Jon David looks at consciousness, right down to the consciousness of rocks.

Our new issue is now online. What is the universe made of? This very old and deceptively simple question is at the heart of metaphysics, which is the focus of this issue of Philosophy Now: https://philosophynow.org

Story
Tagline
A magazine for everyone interested in ideas. https://philosophynow.org/
Introduction
Philosophy Now is a newsstand magazine for everyone interested in ideas. It aims to corrupt innocent citizens by convincing them that philosophy can be exciting, worthwhile and comprehensible, and also to provide some light and enjoyable reading matter for those already ensnared by the muse, such as philosophy students and academics.

Philosophy Now appears every two months. It contains articles on all aspects of Western philosophy, as well as book reviews, letters, news, cartoons, and the occasional short story.

Since its small-scale launch in Britain in 1991, Philosophy Now has grown to become the most widely-read philosophy periodical in the English language. It is available from bookstores and newsstands throughout Britain, the USA, Canada and Australia. Philosophy Now is independent of all groups and has no intentional editorial bias except for a passionate conviction that philosophy is a Good Thing.
