Aperto Animo is an annual, student-run philosophical journal that publishes the work of undergraduate students in the field of philosophy. Aperto Animo seeks to facilitate thoughtful philosophical discussions on campus, and to prompt students to explore philosophy outside of the classroom. We want to help students learn how to interpret and critique philosophy across the years, and to bring students to be more analytical and aware of the world around them.

We are looking for submissions in a range of philosophical subcategories, including ethics, value theory, political thought, epistemology, metaphysics, philosophy of the mind, philosophy of language, and critiques of other philosophers’ writings. Submissions can be anywhere from very brief explorations of the various philosophical components at play in a contemporary issue, to longer papers. We generally look for submissions within the range of 2-to-15-page range but are open to reading longer submissions as well.
