Launched in 2001, Philosophie antique was the first French journal to specialize in ancient philosophy. While its primary aim is to provide French studies in the field of ancient philosophy with a publication forum, the content of each annual issue demonstrates that the journal also contributes to the international debate by regularly welcoming foreign contributions. It is possible to submit papers in English, or occcasionally in German, Spanish or Italian. In order to be a complete information resource, in addition to original pieces, the journal publishes reviews of major works in the field. The journal distinguishes itself from other major journals in ancient philosophy by being open to the history of the reception of ancient philosophy, either from the point of view of the disciplines historiography or from that of the importance of Ancient philosophical ideas in later phases of the history of thought: in the Middle Ages, the Renaissance, or any phases of the modern age. The journal offers thematic issues, but space is left in each issue for varia, so that it is ever posssible to welcome results of ongoing research, of both recognized and young scholars.
