Subseries 3. Editorship of Philosophical Studies, 1957-1989

Scope and Content Notes:

These files chronicle Sellars establishment and editorship of the journal Philosophical Studies from 1951-1989. These files also document the creation of a related book series, Philosophical Studies Series in Philosophy. Most of the files pertain to the journal and consist of correspondence. Largely composed of cover letters, this correspondence originates from philosophers who are submitting their manuscripts for publication. The cover letters are supplemented by a limited amount of manuscripts, as well as letters of acceptance, rejection notices, or evaluations of the manuscripts. The correspondence with publishers illuminates the process of selecting and arranging published articles, as well as granting permission to reproduce articles. In addition to correspondence the subseries contain a log book of manuscripts as well as referee reports. These reports are especially important, since they provide researchers with succinct evaluations of a philosopher's argument. The files relating to the journal phase out in 1974, when Sellars decided to resign as editor and focus on the development of the book series. The book series correspondence is similar to the article submission correspondence and highlights the types of manuscripts submitted for publication.
