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 analytic and pragmatist) 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 first number was Dialogue
The theme of the second number was Body and Spirit.
The theme of the third number was Identity, Rights, and Responsibilities.
The theme of the fourth number was Culture,
Diversity, and Shared Values.
The theme of the fifth number was Philosophy
Emerging from Culture.
The theme of the sixth and seventh
numbers was Cultural Clash and Religion
The theme of the eighth number was Religious
Wisdom and Perennial Philosophy: East and West
The theme of the ninth number was Oppression,
Resistance, and Rights: Philosophical and Religious
The theme of the tenth number was Religion,
Philosophy, and Culture
The theme of the eleventh number will be Persons and Personalisms
Future issues will focus on such themes as Religion after Modernity; Freedom and Democracy; Concepts of Development; Human Dignity and Depersonalization; Truth and Morality; National Philosophies ; Environment and Human Value; and Philosophy and Religion in Dialogue.
