Journals on the Teaching of Philosophy
Teaching Philosophy
Teaching Philosophy is the only journal devoted to the practical and theoretical discussion of teaching and learning philosophy. Since 1975 it has provided a peer-reviewed forum for the exchange of ideas about the challenges faced by philosophers in the classroom, and has published the largest body of original work on philosophy teaching in the English language. Each quarterly issue offers support for all levels of philosophy instruction with a unique mix of articles, reports, case studies, and reviews.

Metaphilosophy publishes articles and reviews books stressing considerations about philosophy and particular schools, methods, or fields of philosophy. The intended scope is very broad: no method, field, or school is excluded.
