Aimes and scope. The Editors of the journal invite scholarly studies in history and philosophy and papers reporting the on-going debates in contemporary philosophy and historical studies, representing various currents in historic and philosophical inquiry, including analytic and european or worldwide traditions and comparative perspectives. Moreover, in the scope of our interest there are interdisciplinary papers undertaking historical and philosophical problems in terms of other scientific disciplines.

Besides, we are open to critical and innovative suggestions concerning teaching methods and the purposes of up-to-date historical and philosophical education.
