Abstract

J S P The Pennsylvania State University In 1867, the first issue of The Journal of Speculative Philosophy (JSP) appeared under the editorship of William T. Harris (1835­1909). In that issue, Harris launched his enterprise with a message "To The Reader" announcing his objectives and aspirations. What Harris announced in the opening issue needs to be seen in light of what he accomplished in this and subsequent ones. Charles Sanders Peirce and Williams James published some of their first articles here. Indeed, one of Peirce's best-known series of papers first appeared in JSP, the one wherein he formulates his critique of Cartesianism ("Some Questions Concerning Certain Faculties Claimed for Man," "Further Consequences of Four Incapacities," and "Grounds of Validity of the Laws of Logic: Further Consequences of Four Incapacities"). Essays by Ralph Waldo Emerson, G. Stanley Hall, George Sylvester Morris, and others appeared in this forum. In 1893, the Journal ceased publication: the first journal in the United States devoted primarily to philosophical work concluded its notable but brief life.
