The Journal of the Philosophy of History (JPH) is devoted to philosophical examinations of history and of historiography. We are interested in conceptual studies of what history and historiography are and of what their philosophy is and ought to be.

The journal covers a wide range of questions: epistemological questions regarding whether, and what kind of, knowledge of the past is possible; ontological questions regarding history and history-writing; phenomenological questions regarding historical experience; semantic questions regarding the referentiality and meaning of both historiographical texts as wholes and their constitutive statements; philosophy of science-related questions regarding the nature of historiographical explanation and understanding as well as the scientific status of historiography generally; and axiological questions regarding the ethical and aesthetical value of history-writing.

The philosophy of history has a rich history. We welcome submissions that engage with that history, so long as they contribute to the philosophical understanding of history or of historiography. We also welcome manuscripts that deal with philosophical questions and problems regarding the historiography of science. Finally, we have a strong interest in forging closer relations between philosophy and history: How can history help to solve philosophical problems? How can philosophy illuminate problems in the researching and writing of history? The Journal of the Philosophy of History is a double-blind peer-reviewed journal. We welcome contributions from all branches of philosophy, including epistemology, metaphysics, philosophy of language, philosophy of science, philosophy of the historiography of science, aesthetics, and value theory, so long as they engage fruitfully with history and historiography. We also welcome historiographical contributions, so long as they engage fruitfully with issues in the philosophy of history and of historiography.

Méthexis

International Journal for Ancient Philosophy

Founded in 1988 by Conrado Eggers Lan (Universidad de Buenos Aires), Méthexis seeks to promote studies and research in the history of ancient philosophy (throughout the course of its development), so as to offer scholars a venue for discussing and comparing their results. Within this general framework, the journal stands out on account of two distinguishing features: 1) it welcomes, or indeed solicits, contributions reflecting different schools of thought and methodological approaches, be they analytical, hermeneutical, historical or chiefly philological contributions; 2) the journal values the wide range of national traditions, including – as far as this is possible – from a linguistic perspective, as it accepts contributions in five languages (English, French, German, Italian and Spanish); by doing so, the journal seeks to present itself as an “international” publication, in the strictest sense of the term.

Editor-in-Chief Thornton C. Lockwood

Polis (AGPT) was founded in 1977 to provide a forum for publication to scholars specializing in what was then a neglected sub-field – ancient Greek political thought. In the years since, Polis has expanded its coverage to include Hellenistic and Roman political thought. Over the years Polis evolved into a fully-fledged academic journal that publishes material of interest to those who study ancient Greek and Roman political thought broadly understood, whether they do so as classicists, ancient historians, philosophers, intellectual historians, or political scientists. Polis also welcomes articles on the reception of ancient Greek and Roman political thought in Europe, America, or elsewhere. Since its inception the journal speaks for no particular perspective or methodology and it is devoted to the publication of original papers, even though extensive literature reviews, critiques of contemporary research, and review essays are also included.

Polis publishes contributions written in English, French and German. Submissions are peer-reviewed, and an editorial decision is made on the basis of these reviews. The views and opinions expressed in peer-reviewed articles published in Polis are those of the authors and do not reflect the position of the journal.
