About the Journal

Labyrinth: An International Journal for Philosophy, Value Theory and Sociocultural Hermeneutics is published since 1999 by the Institute for Axiological Research / Institut für Axiologische Forschungen (Vienna). From 1999 till 2002 it was an on-line journal, thereafter it was published in printed volumes. It is actually both, a printed academic journal, available for purchase, and an electronic open access journal. After re-formatting, all past issues will be fully availble in the archives.

As a nonpartisan philosophical and interdisciplinary journal Labyrinth is engaged in publication of high quality peer-reviewed academic articles, critical essays, interviews and book reviews. Although it is focused on philosophy and on axiology, i.e. on the philosophy and theory of values and their sociocultural contexts, it is also open to related issues in all fields of the humanities and the social sciences with a special emphasis on critical thinking, social controversies and conflict resolution, interfaith dialogue, intercultural and cross-cultural communication, gender studies and managing diversity.
