"Anthropos?" (ISSN 1730-9549, ISSN CD-ROM 1689-720X) is the journal affiliated to the Faculty of Philology at the University of Silesia in Katowice.

The academic journal entitled "Anthropos?" (with a question mark) 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?".

The journal is a fully peer reviewed (the journal uses double-blind review). As an open access journal, all articles in "Anthropos?" are freely available online to readers.
