Ex Animo


Ex Animo is an undergraduate-run, peer-reviewed, open-access philosophy journal. Pluralistic in nature, this journal aims to publish the philosophical works of undergraduates that are driven by and grounded in a philosophical interest in the world. As such, the journal represents plurality not only in the diversity of the thought expressed in the journal but in the various media through which the works themselves are expressed. Visual, textual (e.g., academic papers, aphorisms, poetry, and short stories), and multimedia works of philosophical intent are the focus of publication at Ex Animo.
