Anthropos? - what is it exactly?
The Academic Journal entitled "Anthropos?" (with a question mark), a periodical
affiliated to the Institute of Cultural and Interdisciplinary Studies at the
University of Silesia in Katowice, is published as part of the non-commercial
and purely academic and educational project "Anthropos?", initiated in 2002.
"Anthropos?" is an interdisciplinary journal investigating Man and Culture
from a perspective of cultural anthropology and philosophy of culture.
It is nowadays customary for many academic institutions to refer to the Greek
notion of anthropos in their publishing series or names of projects. This is
due to the fact that we are so much anchored in the Greek heritage.
Ever since the launching of the project in 2002 there has been a question mark
attached to the name of the journal. It is absolutely crucial to the idea behind
the whole enterprise. What is meant by the name is revealed by the contents
of the publication which favours contemporary reflection on things that are
not fully determinate and easy to point out and identify, the sort of reflection
that is marked by doubt and uncertainty. Hence the question mark, as we understand
it, is decisive in terms of the journals standing in public sphere, documenting
our uncertainty in sketching the image of a human being. We try to answer the
classical question - "What is a Human being?". We also try to answer the postmodern
question - "What contexts are create our identity?".
Academic Journal is a fully peer reviewed (the journal uses double-blind review).
"Anthropos?" is indexed by The Ministry of Science and Higher Education (List
"B"). An open-access journal is available online.
Academic Journal "Anthropos?" is affiliated to the Institute of Cultural and
Interdisciplinary Studies at the University of Silesia in Katowice.
