Dialectic is the journal of the University of York Philosophy Society under the editorship of the Dialectic committee. It is produced by University of York students for an undergraduate audience, but features essays by undergraduates, postgraduates and academics from various institutions in the UK and  abroad.

Since the magazine’s inception in 2007, Dialectic gained considerable momentum.  Beginning as a solely online entity publishing essays by University of York students, Dialectic is now both online and in print and has received submissions and published work by students of the University of Warwick, U.C.L., the University of Bristol, the University of Essex, Durham University, the University of Birmingham, King’s College London, L.S.E. , the University of Edinburgh and the university of Oxford.  Dialectic is an important part of York Philosophy Society’s endeavour to encourage interaction between philosophy students at different institutions.

Dialectic is currently out of print. During the course of 2014 the magazine was unable to continue due to personal commitments of the editors and a new editorial team is to be created by December 2014. If you are a student at the University of York and are interested in editing the magazine or applying for the roles of layout editor, distribution manager or marketing manager, send an email to the York University Philosophy Society at philosophy@yusu.org explaining what you want to apply for and why you think you are suitable. We especially welcome applications from a range of ages, women, non-Philosophy students, international students and people of diverse or multi-ethnic backgrounds.
