The Monist: An International Quarterly Journal of General Philosophical Inquiry is a quarterly peer-reviewed academic journal in the field of philosophy. It was established in October 1890 by Edward C. Hegeler.[1] The Monist helped professionalize philosophy as an academic discipline in the United States.[citation needed]

The journal's editors-in-chief have included Paul Carus (1890-1919), Mary Hegeler Carus (1919-1936), Eugene Freeman (1962-1983), John Hospers (1983-1991), and Barry Smith (1991–present).[2]

After ceasing publication in 1936, The Monist resumed publication in 1962 and has been continually published since then. Each issue contains papers on a single, pre-announced topic. All issues (1890–present) are available online from the Philosophy Documentation Center.
