Aporia is an undergraduate journal of philosophy at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah. It is known as a philosophical puzzle or state of puzzlement. Socrates describes the purgative effect of reducing someone to aporia: it shows someone who merely thought he knew something that he does not in fact know it and instills in him a desire to investigate it.
Aporia is published twice yearly: an online edition in the fall, and a print edition in the spring. The staff of Aporiaconsists are philosophy students at Brigham Young University. For information on joining the Aporia staff, email us at the address below. For information on submitting a paper to Aporia, click here.
As you progress through your career as an undergraduate student, be aware of the opportunities you have to edify your education, and build your experience. Consider writing and revising essays to submit to journals. Go to the Media tab and watch the Mark Hannig testimonial video on how Aporia prepared him in his career.
