Welcome to Acumen Publishing

Acumen is an independent publisher of academic books and journals in philosophy, religion, classical studies and history of ideas for students, lecturers and researchers in institutions of higher education worldwide.

In keeping with the best practices of academic publishing, each of our titles goes through a rigorous process of peer review prior to publication. Our standards of production are similarly high.

Acumen draws its authors from the UK, North America and throughout the world and aims to publish books that, without any compromise to scholarship, are accessible to the widest of academic readerships.
