eISSN: 1461734X | ISSN: 01914537 | Current volume: 50 | Current issue: 6 Frequency: 10 Times/Year

Philosophy & Social Criticism is a fully peer reviewed international journal that publishes original research and review articles. It presents original theoretical contributions to the latest developments in social and political thought, emphasizing the contributions of continental scholarship as it affects international theoretical developments

In contemporary society reason cannot be separated from practical life and at their interface a critical attitude is forged. Philosophy & Social Criticism was established nearly thirty years ago to bring together articles which foster this attitude. It is now a leading international journal in social and political philosophy.

Since it was established in 1973, the journal has published the work of some of the world's leading theorists, including:

· Seyla Benhabib · Cornelius Castoriadis · Umberto Eco · Michel Foucault · Jürgen Habermas · Agnes Heller · Axel Honneth · Hans-Georg Gadamer · Ernesto Laclau · Paul Ricoeur

Philosophy & Social Criticism has been at the forefront of contemporary academic scholarship and over the years has provided a focal point for major international debates and theoretical developments.

"Philosophy & Social Criticsm has been for some time the refuge of informed and erudite philosophy which refused to wear the straight-jacket of the Academe. Its spirit of domination-free communication, its genuine, but far from unprincipled pluralism, makes it an epitome of what committed and serious thinking should be." Agnes Heller

"Philosophy & Social Criticism is a unique and invaluable voice in philosophy and social criticism. It represents a non-ideological intervention into academic debates, offering a diverse range of philosophical perspectives" Drucilla Cornell

"For over twenty years, Philosophy & Social Criticism has set the standard for a truly interdisciplinary dialogue that has enriched the contemporary philosophical scene" Maurizio Passerin d'Entreves

"Philosophy & Social Criticism has the unique ability to bring together well thought through contributions by the leading theorists of the day and the daring endeavours of brilliant young people" Alessandro Ferrara

In modern industrial society reason cannot be separated from practical life. At their interface a critical attitude is forged. Philosophy & Social Criticism wishes to foster this attitude through the publication of essays in philosophy and politics, philosophy and social theory, socio-economic thought, critique of science, theory and praxis. We provide a forum for open scholarly discussion of these issues from a critical-historical point of view.
