About Philolu

Philolu is a blog created by philosophy students at the University of Luxembourg. However—and this is very important to us—this is not strictly a philosophy blog. Rather, we like to think of it as a philosophical blog, meaning we publish everything that may be loosely thought of as philosophy-related. What we mean by this is that we welcome poetry or general observations about life just as much as we  value a thorough commentary on transcendental freedom in Kant’s Critique of Pure Reason.

Another defining characteristic of Philolu is that we cherish internationality and interculturality. It is for this reason that we have chosen not to limit ourselves to a single language. On the contrary, the rule is that we use whatever language we feel most comfortable expressing ourselves in. We do, however, offer a translation for every piece that is not written in English. We feel that this way we can retain the charm of multilingualism while at the same time ensuring that everyone can read every piece that is published on Philolu.

Lastly, we heartily welcome you, dear reader, to let us know what you think or how you feel about what you read on Philolu. Below every article you will find a comment section that will allow you to either start a discussion or contribute to it. The only thing you should be aware of before commenting on an article is our community standards, which you can read about here.

And that’s it! The only thing that’s left for us to do now is to direct you back to the home page, where you can find our most recent articles. Cheers!
