Public Affairs Quarterly
Public Affairs Quarterly (PAQ) is devoted to current issues in social and political philosophy. It specializes in contributions that examine matters on the current agenda of public policy in light of philosophical reflections and assessments. The journal offers tightly focused philosophical case studies of particular issues in such areas associal and economic justice; public welfare; individual entitlements, rights, and duties; inheritance, taxation, and distributive justice in general; population policy, abortion, and euthanasia; environmental problems; science policy; the social and political status of women, senior citizens, minorities, and other social groups; arms control, war and deterrence; loyalty, duty, and patriotism; ethical issues in medicine, business, and the professions; criminality, criminal justice, and punishment; and similar topics.
PAQ seeks to promote the understanding of issues of public policy by publishing essays that bring philosophical depth and sophistication to matters on the agenda of public debate that would otherwise be left to the tender mercies of political rhetoric and journalistic oversimplification.
PAQ is published by the University of Illinois Press on behalf of North American Philosophical Publications.
