Mind is a British peer-reviewed academic journal, currently published by Oxford University Press on behalf of the Mind Association, which deals with philosophy in the analytic tradition. Its institutional home is the University of York.
Mind was established in 1876 by the Scottish philosopher Alexander Bain (University of Aberdeen) with his colleague and former student George Croom Robertson (University College London) as editor-in-chief. Bain underwrote the initial risks of publishing and served as proprietor for the first sixteen years. It was the first journal to publish articles on psychological topics and was influential in the development of psychology as a profession.
Although the journal now focuses on analytic philosophy, it began as a journal dedicated to the question of whether psychology could be a legitimate natural science. In the first issue, Robertson wrote:
"Now, if there were a journal that set itself to record all advances in psychology, and gave encouragement to special researches by its readiness to publish them, the uncertainty hanging over the subject could hardly fail to be dispelled. Either psychology would in time pass with general consent into the company of the sciences, or the hollowness of its pretensions would be plainly revealed. Nothing less, in fact, is aimed at in the publication of Mind than to procure a decision of this question as to the scientific standing of psychology."
Many famous essays have been published in Mind by such figures as Charles Darwin, J. M. E. McTaggart and Noam Chomsky. Three of the most famous, arguably, are Lewis Carroll's "What the Tortoise Said to Achilles" (1895), Bertrand Russell's "On Denoting" (1905), and Alan Turing's "Computing Machinery and Intelligence" (1950), in which he first proposed the Turing test.
