A fairly easy topic to describe - it’s Kant. Both Kantian ethics and Kantian metaphysics end up here. Like all of the other early modern topics, it drops away a bit after Ryle takes over Mind and decrees that only Greek history will be allowed in the journal. But it always hovers a bit above the zero line.
I had expected there would be a bit more in recent years, but I think I’d been taking Philosophical Review to be a more representative than it turns out to be. The data is a little noisy, but it does look like Philosophical Review has been substantially more receptive to work on Kant in the last twenty years than any of the other journals.
