Philosophy and Society is a peer reviewed, open access academic journal established in 1987 and published quarterly by the Institute for Philosophy and Social Theory, University of Belgrade. The journal was founded by members of the Belgrade ‘Praxis School’. The journal strives to cover and present key tendencies of contemporary theory and, at the same time, to encourage research in studies of philosophy and the humanities. Philosophy and Society has always welcomed contributions from established international academics: from the first issue, which contained the articles of A. Wellmer and R. Bernstin, to the most recent volumes with contributions from T. Scanlon, O. Höffe, J.L. Marion, J. Butler, H. Brunkhorst, K. R. Westphal, H. B. Schmid, D. Zahavi, P. Cobben, and other renowned philosophers.
