The Philosopher Launches Digital Archive

The Philosopher, the official journal of the Philosophical Society of England, has partnered with digital publishing company Exact Editions to create a new digital archive.

The Philosopher Launches Digital Archive
Anthony Morgan: “We are looking forward to expanding the digital product into institutions around the world.”

Every page, feature and article is now fully-searchable and available for seamless cross-platform browsing on web, iOS and Android devices.

First founded in 1923, The Philosopher is built around the belief that anything can be made clear to the interested reader, says Exact Editions. Articles are considered without discrimination as to subject matter or author; the only criteria being that they must be philosophical in method and expressed in clear, understandable language. Its pages have hosted many famous contributors over the years, including John Dewey, G. K. Chesterton and Mary Midgley.

The Philosopher, founded in 1923, is the longest-running public philosophy journal in the UK. The title is the official journal of charitable organisation the Philosophical Society of England (PSE), and is published quarterly by Bigg Books, an independent philosophy publisher based in Newcastle upon Tyne.

The 17-issue strong archive, which will grow with each new issue released, is available in the Exact Editions institutional and individual shops.

Editor Anthony Morgan said: “We’re delighted with the innovative archive, in which the visual element of the publication is beautifully presented across all platforms. We are looking forward to expanding the digital product into institutions around the world.”

Managing Director of Exact Editions, Daryl Rayner, commented: “The Philosopher has a long and culturally important history, making it an ideal candidate for the Exact Editions platform. I have no doubt that it will serve as an excellent and extensive resource to philosophy students, professionals and enthusiasts.”
