About the Journal
Focus and Scope
Folia Philosophica invites philosophical publications both in Polish and English.
Folia publish research articles in both the history of philosophy and the main branches of philosophy, such as ontology, epistemology, ethics, anthropology, social philosophy, and philosophy of religion. It also has a review section. Thus, it welcomes a wide range of submissions and is open to topics in all branches of philosophy. Folia Philosophica publishes contributions by Polish scholars but also translations of philosophical texts – both by classical philosophers and by prominent representatives of contemporary philosophy. It welcomes articles by contributors from all over the world, aiming to go beyond the national scope and join the international discussion on current philosophical issues, which brings together a variety of perspectives and voices.
Its first issue was released in 1984 as the 14th volume in the Social Sciences Series, so initially, the journal was not a separate periodical. It was not until 1993 that it became established as a free-standing journal, acquiring this new status with its 11th volume. Starting with volume 24, Folia Philosophica is wholly available online and has an editorial board and an international scientific board. Since the 35th volume (2016) Folia Philosophica has been published as a self-standing semi-annual periodical. From 2018 all articles will be available open access.
