    Discusses a recent legal case concerning the Cambridge Philosophical Society and its subscription to newspapers. Upholds the philosophical content of newspapers and their consequent suitability for consumption by members of the Cambridge Philosophical Society. Points out that, conversely, 'the so-called philosophical journals contain news', such as the discovery of a new star or a 'new method of preparing monoditetrethylomethylopropylamylamonium'.
