Thematic scope

The thematic scope of the journal includes all the philosophical problems which are related to science, i.e.
— philosophical problems which adopt results of science as objectives of analyses, sources of information or inspirations;
— epistemology and methodology;
— philosophical schools which identify themselves as science;
— investigations of relations between science and lifewords, social reality and culture.


Apart from purely philosohpical texts, we also publish essays in which philosophical threads are connected with typically scientific ones. This intention reveals the fuziness of the boundaries between science and philosophy.

The diversity of philosophical programmes

No metaphilosophical limitations are established. The journal is not a forum of only one philosophical school. The journal accepts and promotes the diversity of philosophical programmes as well as connections between various philosophical schools and their interpenetrations.
