The LYCEUM is an online scholarly journal produced by the St. Anselm College Philosophy Department. It publishes papers on traditional problems in metaphysics, epistemology, ethics, and the history of philosophy. The journal is particularly interested in articles that address the Catholic philosophical tradition, broadly construed.   The LYCEUM publishes professional articles accessible to both professional and undergraduate audiences, as well as a small number of articles by undergraduates per issue.

Authors should refer to previous issues for examples of the preferred sectioning styles.
