The Philosopher is the longest-running public philosophy journal in the UK, founded in 1923. It is the official journal of the Philosophical Society of England (PSE), a charitable organisation founded ten years earlier than the journal in 1913, and still running regular, groups, workshops, and conferences around the UK. As of 2018, The Philosopher is edited by Newcastle-based philosopher Anthony Morgan and published by Bigg Books.

The Philosopher is a journal built around the belief than anything can be made clear to the interested reader. Articles are considered without discrimination as to subject matter or author; the only criteria being that they must be philosophical in method and expressed in clear, understandable language. Contributors over the years have ranged from John Dewey and G. K. Chesterton to contemporary thinkers like Daniel Hutto, Mary Midgley, and Stephen Mumford.
