Continental Philosophy Journals
Below is a list of Philosophy Journals published or edited in the Australasian region that publish articles in the continental tradition.
Cosmos and History: The Journal of Natural and Social Philosophy
Cosmos and History: The Journal of Natural and Social Philosophy is a peer-reviewed, open-access journal of natural and social philosophy. It serves those who see philosophy's vocation in questioning and challenging prevailing assumptions about ourselves and our place in the world, developing new ways of thinking about physical existence, life, humanity and society, so helping to create the future insofar as thought affects the issue. Philosophy so conceived is not exclusively identified with the work of professional philosophers, and the journal welcomes contributions from philosophically oriented thinkers from all disciplines.
Critical Horizons: A Journal of Philosophy and Social Theory
Critical Horizons works at the intersection of philosophy, aesthetics and social and critical theory. It brings together a unique combination of perspectives to create a vibrant forum for critical analysis and creative dissonance. Critical Horizons is dedicated to publishing original analyses of contemporary social and cultural life from those working at the forefront of critical thinking as well as new generations of critical theorists from across a broad range of cultural contexts and theoretical traditions.
Critical Horizons publishes articles from critical theorists working in social and political philosophy, aesthetics, spatial and urban theory, anthropology, history of ideas, film and art theory, gender studies, comparative literature, social and critical theory.
Critical Horizons is an internationally refereed journal and has published the work of Etienne Balibar, Andrew Bowie, Fred Dallmayr, Manfred Frank, Agnes Heller, Dieter Henrich, Axel Honneth, Martin Jay, Richard Kearney, Alphonso Lingis, Paul Patton, Jacques Rancière, Emmanuel Renault, and Richard Rorty. The journal is published three times a year.
Derrida Today focuses on what Derrida's thought offers to contemporary debates about politics, society and global affairs. Controversies about power, violence, identity, globalisation, the resurgence of religion, economics and the role of critique all agitate public policy, media dialogue and academic debate. Derrida Today explores how Derridean thought and deconstruction make significant contributions to this debate, and reconsider the terms on which it takes place.
Derrida Today is now inviting papers that deal with the ongoing relevance of Derrida's work and deconstruction in general to contemporary issues; the way it reconfigures the academic and social protocols and languages by which such issues are defined and discussed, and innovative artistic practices that adopt a 'deconstructive' approach to how our contemporary situation can be represented.

Sophia: International Journal for Philosophy of Religion, Metaphysical Theology and Ethics
Covers both analytic and continental philosophy of religion
Considers western and non-western perspectives, including Asian and indigenous cultures
Offers the contributions of specialists on such topics as feminist and postcolonial philosophy of religion
All issues back to Volume 1:1 now available through SpringerLink
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.
Thesis Eleven (Thesis 11), peer reviewed and published quarterly, is multidisciplinary, reaching across the social sciences (sociology, anthropology, philosophy, geography, cultural studies, literature and politics) and cultivating diverse critical theories of modernity. Reflecting the broad scope of social theory it encourages civilizational analysis on a wide range of alternative modernities and takes critical theory from the margins of the world system to its centre.
