Sophia: International Journal of Philosophy and Traditions

 International Journal of Philosophy and Traditions Since its founding in 1962, the journal Sophia has provided a forum for discussions in philosophy and religion, focusing on the interstices between metaphysics and theological thinking. The discussions encompass the wider ambience of the sciences ('natural' philosophy and human/social sciences), ethical and moral concerns in the public sphere, critical feminist theology and cross-cultural perspectives. Sophia's cross-cultural and cross-frontier approach is reflected not only in the international composition of its editorial board, but also in its consideration of analytic, continental, Asian and indigenous responses to issues and developments in the field of philosophy of religion.
