The Partially Examined Life takes submissions for essays related to philosophy, culture, and ideas. We’d love to see queries from writers who can contribute:
- Philosophy-related essays, personal essays, and interviews. See The Stone for great examples of this sort of content: http://opinionator.blogs.nytimes.com/category/the-stone/
- Book Reviews of philosophical texts.
- Review essays about any genre and medium, including thoughtful takes on literature and film. These need not explicitly be about philosophy and philosophers.
- Thoughtful pieces related to politics and culture, especially pieces that analyze current issues by way of political philosophy, social thought, moral philosophy, moral psychology, and psychoanalysis.
- Pieces related to the intersection of philosophy and popular culture (as in the Popular Culture and Philosophy series).
- Anything else you think you can persuade us is suitable to our site -- pitch away.
Please send queries or pieces on spec to email@example.com.
Unfortunately, we cannot respond to every query.
Letters to the Editor
Contributing to the comments section is all well and good, but if you’d really like to be heard, send us a letter, by which we mean an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll share (anonymously if you prefer) and respond to the best letters via our blog.
