The Gadfly 

Literature and Writing
Undergraduate Students

The Gadfly is the undergraduate philosophy magazine of Columbia University, and the first in the country. It is a magazine and not a journal—instead of publishing formal academic papers, we print informal essays, book and event reviews, interviews, humor, and short stories and lots of art. We think philosophy is too important to limit our readership through jargon and name-dropping. We publish The Gadfly so that all undergraduates—not only those specializing in philosophy—can take part in enjoyable philosophical dialogue.
