ABOUT


Nowadays, many philosophical journals mainly focus on Western philosophy, whether it is Antiquity, New Age or contemporary philosophy. However, in the last 5,000 years, philosophy was conducted all around the globe and there is more than Socrates or Aristotle. On the other hand, many local beliefs or systems of thought are rather subject to ethnology, rather than philosophy, as ethnologists and anthropologists analyse indigenious religions and the different kinds of beliefs and cults all around the world. 

The Journal of Ethnophilosphical Questions and Global Ethics wants to tear down the border between philosophy and ethnology and give a space to philosophical systems and beliefs all around the world. The main goal is to broaden our views on global matters and see them from different perspectives. The access to the journal is open and the articles are published under Creative Commons. To ensure a high quality of the content and gain acceptance in the scientific community, we use a peer review process and high scientific standards. 

We have are open to a broad variety of philosophical and societal topics. As such, we want to give the possibility of a wider range of audience for scientific researchers but also students and independent scholars who have done research on a philosophical issue that has a global matter, or who have a large background knowledge about indigenious beliefs and systems of thoughts, as well as mentalities, historical backgrounds, and global contact.

Despite that, we want to give a room for discussion and reviewing. Therefore, it does not matter whether one wants to give an introduction on an ethnic philsophy or a controversial issue. The papers, however, should at least include an ethical question or an ethnological description, so that eitheer something is explained or something is quetioned. In this way, we want to encourage the appraisal and re-appraisal of ethical behavior, but also broaden the understanding of mentalities and the behaviour of people.
