The Archiv für Geschichte der Philosophie [Archive for the History of Philosophy] is one of the worlds leading specialist periodicals for the whole field of research into the history of philosophy. The Archive publishes outstanding papers on all epochs of the history of Western philosophy, from Antiquity up to the 20th century. The Archive insists on the highest standards of historical accuracy and precision of argument. The linguistic presentation of topics should be transparent and lucid throughout. Articles should reflect the current state of research appropriately and comprehensively and at the same time make a substantial contribution to the advancement of our knowledge of an historical author, a school, a problem or a concept. The Archive was founded in 1888 by Ludwig Stein. As a pupil and close collaborator of the great Eduard Zellers, Stein felt a commitment to a form of philosophical historiography which proceeds rationally and objectively, critically and without prejudice, and with precision of argument. This vision still guides the journal today. The Archive regards itself as an international periodical in which different specialist traditions have a role to play. The Archive for the History of Philosophy appears annually in three numbers with a total length of some 360 pages. It is edited by two Europeans, Wolfgang Bartuschat (Hamburg) and Christoph Horn (Bonn), and an American, Christia Mercer (New York). They are supported in the review of submitted manuscripts by an editorial board composed of internationally renowned scholars from a variety of specialist fields. Articles can be published in German, English, French and Italian. Besides articles and reviews, there is also an occasional forum for controversial positions in a section Under discussion; in addition, the Archive provides space for the first publication of short primary historical texts.
