Philosophy, Culture, and Traditions
a journal of the World Union of Catholic Philosophical Societies
(a member of the International Federation of Philosophical Societies (FISP))
to be submitted by 15 March 2003

Philosophy, Culture, and Traditions is a multi-lingual (English - French - Spanish - Italian - German) philosophical journal, published annually, and sponsored by the World Union of Catholic Philosophical Societies.

It appears in print [ISSN 1609-2392] and in electronic [ISSN 1609-2406] format. A volume of approximately 200 pages is published each year; selected papers, along with a supplementary volume, are published in an electronic format.

The journal aims at promoting dialogue and the fruitful exchange of ideas between philosophy and religious and cultural traditions. While recognizing the important contribution of Christianity to philosophy, articles appearing in the journal are not restricted to philosophy in the Christian or Catholic traditions.

Articles normally address general philosophical concerns, and authors include representatives of Asian, African, and aboriginal, as well as western (including the phenomenological, idealist, Thomist, and Anglo-American) traditions.

The journal accepts manuscripts in all areas of philosophy, although each issue will contain a number of articles devoted to a specific theme.

The theme of the second number is Body and Spirit.
