Common Knowledge: Peace and Mind: Volume 8, Issue 1
Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
BeschreibungDescribed by the New York Times as one of two American journals in which public intellectuals and other scholars prefer to publish, the highly acclaimed Common Knowledge has returned to publication after a two-year hiatus. Born in an attempt to moderate and get past the "culture wars" of the 1990s, Common Knowledge has moved its headquarters, literally, to a war zone -- Israel -- and accordingly its editorial interests have broadened to include culture wars of a less metaphorical kind.Its mission is both incredibly ambitious and shockingly simple: to open up lines of communication between the academy and the community of thoughtful people outside its walls. Common Knowledge was created to form a new intellectual model, one based on conversation or cooperation rather than on metaphors adopted from sports and war, of "sides" that one must "take". The journal will collect work from a variety of fields and specialties, including philosophy, religion, psychology, literary criticism, cultural studies, art history, political science, and social, cultural, and intellectual history.
