Starting with its tenth (2000) volume, Philosophical Issues will be a yearly one-volume supplement to Noûs. Each year it will be devoted to invited papers and book symposia in a specific area of philosophy.

The yearly has attained distinction through the uniformly high quality of its previous nine volumes and the fact that its authors include many of the most distinguished philosophers active today. The topic of Volume 10 is controversies at the interface of epistemology with philosophy of language and philosophy of mind, including discussion of the sorites paradox and linguistic contextualism on attributions of knowledge.
