Ephemeris is an undergraduate journal of philosophy, student-run and dedicated to harvesting exceptional undergraduate writing grounded in the distinct value and interest of the philosophical endeavor.

Ephemeris originates from Union College's Philosophy Club - a forum for social and intellectual interaction among philosophers at Union.
