Eidos. A Journal for Philosophy of Culture is an online, international English-language quarterly journal devoted to, broadly understood, philosophy of culture. One of our main tasks is to promote the development of philosophy of culture as a distinct sub-discipline within contemporary philosophy – to identify its main methods and problems.
As we believe that philosophy of culture nowadays can – and should – play a synoptic role, we see as one of our main tasks to initiate an ongoing international debate which involves different philosophical perspectives and methods as well as various academic disciplines: sociology, psychology, economics, media sciences, cultural studies, and so forth.
Eidos. A Journal for Philosophy of Culture is, in principle, a problem-oriented journal, which means that we are much more interested in identifying and addressing problems crucial to philosophy of culture today than in historical or exegetic perspectives. To be sure, this does not preclude using interpretative tools taken from the vast inventory of the history of philosophy – but first and foremost, we are interested in possible ways of applying them in analyses of contemporary cultural phenomena.
Eidos. A Journal for Philosophy of Culture is affiliated with the Faculty of Philosophy (previously the Institute of Philosophy) at University of Warsaw and was created as a part and an effect of international research projects carried by the Department of Philosophy of Culture at this Faculty. The journal is edited in cooperation with the Department of Philosophy at Southern Illinois University Carbondale and “The Humane Philosophy Project” – a research project based on the cooperation between the Department of Philosophy of Culture and the University of Oxford (especially the Ian Ramsey Centre for Science and Religion and the Blackfriars Hall).
