International Journal for the Study of Skepticism

As the first international journal entirely devoted to philosophical skepticism, the International Journal for the Study of Skepticism publishes high-quality articles and discussion notes on any field of research relevant to the study of skeptical thought. The journal also contains critical notices and reviews of major books on skepticism, and organizes book symposia on recent ground-breaking works. On occasion, it publishes special issues devoted to current lively debates on specific topics or authors.

The wide range of areas covered includes the history and significance of ancient, medieval, modern, and contemporary skepticism as well as discussions of current specific skeptical problems and arguments in epistemology, metaethics, ontology, philosophy of religion, philosophy of mind, and philosophy of language. The journal is fully committed to the highest standards of clarity and rigor, and serves as a forum for debate and exchange of ideas among leading international philosophers and scholars. It solicits contributions from contemporary philosophers working in a variety of methods and traditions, including both analytic and continental philosophy, as well as contributions from philosophers and scholars working out of the history of philosophy. It thus brings together cutting-edge contemporary discussion of issues related to skepticism and serious historical scholarship on this subject.

The journal publishes mainly in English, but, in keeping with its international scope, submissions in French, German, Italian, Portuguese, or Spanish are also welcome. For inquiries, please contact
