The Monist: An International Quarterly Journal of General Philosophical Inquiry is a quarterly peer-reviewed academic journal in the field of philosophy. It was established in October 1890 by Edward C. Hegeler.[1] The Monist helped professionalize philosophy as an academic discipline in the United States.

The journal's editors-in-chief have included Paul Carus (1890-1919), Mary Hegeler Carus (1919-1936), Eugene Freeman (1962-1983), John Hospers (1983-1991), and Barry Smith (1991–present).[2] Since January 2015 the journal is published by Oxford University Press.

After ceasing publication in 1936, The Monist resumed publication in 1962 and has been continually published since then. Each issue contains papers on a single, pre-announced topic. All issues (1890–present) are available online from the Philosophy Documentation Center.
