The first issue of this magazine was published in February 1982, namely 30 years ago. We have already published No.117 in December 2011.

Characteristic of this magazine is, writing with one phrase, an independent media for contemporary thoughts.


What we request authors to write and what we hope to deliver to readers is following:


1) Radical analysis of problems of the contemporary world (both the world of life and the global world) and appeal for action of people.


2) Philosophical journalism that criticizes sharply and profoundly contemporary forms of social consciousness and thought.


3) Studies of history of thought, rereading past thinkers and talking vividly their actual meaning.


Our style, with which we organize discussions, co-works and editing, is following:


1) Denial of monolithic ideal, using of differences among standpoints, among specialties, and among generations to advantage.


2) Emphasizing of colliding and dialogical relationship between life and philosophy, practical field and theoretical thought.


3) Bringing up of independent media for contemporary thoughts through our own associated activities.


The 21st century seems to be a turning point of the history of mankind. We need radical thoughts in genuine sense. This magazine will continue to challenge. Please support and participate us as a reader ,as a writer, and as a member!
