Aporia is the Philosophy Society's regular journal. "Aporia" stands for philosophical puzzlement, and Plato's dialogues are called "aporetic" since they often end with the interlocutor finding himself confused about the meaning of a concept that he had previously thought he knew. Good examples include piety (The Euthyphro) and courage (The Laches).
Since Feb 2007, Aporia is published bi-annually, and has since then contributed to our readers' "confusion on a higher level". The featured items are predominantly essays on broadly philosophical topics, and submissions are accepted from anyone - undergraduates, post-graduates, professional philosophers and anyone else with the interest and capacity to submit an article.
Call for submissions for Aporia issue 9!
