 Stance is a project of the Ball State University chapter of Phi Sigma Tau, an international undergraduate honor society for philosophy.



Please find attached a Call For Papers for Vol. 4 of Stance: An Undergraduate Philosophy Journal. Stance is a national, peer-reviewed, peer-produced, academic journal that publishes papers by current undergraduate students.


Authors of published papers will receive a free print version of the journal. By April 2008 the Stance staff should have created a full digital presence. Beyond a website, the journal will be electronically housed in an academic library in an open source format.

Please encourage your students with superior work to submit a paper. Also, please distribute this CFP widely.

I will be happy to answer any questions you might have.
