Welcome to Arché

Boston University's student-led journal of philosophy

"Philosophy is a battle against the bewitchment of our intelligence by means of language."

- Wittgenstein, Philosophical Investigations

Forthcoming Issue:

No. 7, Year 2023

Boston University's student-led journal of philosophy, Arché, is currently seeking submissions for its 2023 issue, No. 7 and its 2024 issue, No. 8. These issues are general topics issues and, as such, are not devoted to explorations of a special topic or theme in a particular area of philosophy. We are open to submissions of various formats, including (but not limited to) research papers, critical analyses, conference presentation materials, interviews, and original essays. By showcasing exemplary student-authored works, we intend to support the intellectual and philosophical development of emerging scholars, literary critics, philosophers, and intellectuals across other disciplines.

Topics may address (but are not limited to) the following categories: political philosophy; epistemology; metaphysics; ethics; feminist philosophy; philosophy of science; literary semantics and pragmatics; theories of interpretation (hermeneutics) and theories of language; language formalization and literary style; paralanguage in literature; text linguistics and narratology; mathematical logic and grammar; rhetoric in philosophy; cognitive poetics and stylistics; or philosophical aspects of translation

Undergraduate and graduate students, as well as recent graduates, are invited to submit their work. Those with further questions are encouraged to explore this website and/or query the editors at
