ABOUT THE JOURNAL
Athena: Philosophical Studies is a scholarly journal issued by the Department of Contemporary Philosophy of the Lithuanian Culture Research Institute (former Culture, Philosophy and Arts Research Institute) in Vilnius. The journal was founded in 2006 as a response to the widely felt discontent with academic philosophical publications. The purpose of the journal is to provide a non-formal platform for high quality research in contemporary philosophy. Each issue is dedicated to a specific theme which is analyzed from different methodological approaches and perspectives. Papers should be submitted in one of these languages: Lithuanian, English, German, or French. Each article is reviewed by two anonymous reviewers and discussed by the editorial board. The journal also contains a section of book reviews and descriptions of the most significant academic events.
