Bilkent University Undergraduate Journal of Philosophy


Prokopton is an annual online journal. It is first of its kind in Turkey as a refereed international academic journal of philosophy for undergraduate students. ‘Prokopton’, as a Greek term used by Stoics, means making progress toward truth or being a student of wisdom.

We published our first issue on April 1, 2020. Please take a look at our submission guidelines if you would like to submit your work for our current issue. The deadline is November 19, 2020!

Our managing editorial board consists of philosophy students at Bilkent. We also organize Bilkent’s International Undergraduate Philosophy Conference. The polished versions of the best papers presented at our conference have a good chance of being published in Prokopton.

We are grateful for the support of the Department of Philosophy at Bilkent, especially for the supervision of Dr. Tufan Kıymaz.
