The Journal of Speculative Philosophy: a Quarterly Journal of History, Criticism, and Imagination is an academic journal that publishes systematic and interpretive essays about basic philosophical questions. Scholars examine the constructive interaction between Continental and American philosophy, as well as novel developments in the ideas and theories of past philosophers that have relevance for contemporary thinkers. The journal also features discussions of art, religion, and literature that are not strictly or narrowly philosophical. journal is published quarterly by the Penn State University Press.


An unrelated journal by the same name was established in 1867 by William Torrey Harris of St. Louis, Missouri, thus becoming the first journal on philosophy in the English-speaking world.[1][2] The journal ceased publication in 1893, but the name was revived in 1987 at the Pennsylvania State University with the founding of the Journal of Speculative Philosophy.[2]
