As to aims and scope of the journal, Topos accepts manuscripts of original work, based on research and investigations, and translations in the field of philosophy (the history of philosophy included), and in the philosophy-oriented branches of social studies and humanities like culture theory and cultural studies, visual studies and media theory, literary theory and religious studies, social theory and political studies, postcolonial studies and gender studies, etc. Topos represents continental philosophical tradition (including its interpretation and development beyond geographical boundaries of continental Europe) and is aimed at articulation of the relevance of its analytical and conceptual tools to understanding of the reality within the contemporary world. The journal follows the principle of methodological diversity and supports development and heuristic representation of key modes of contemporary philosophy theorization: phenomenology and hermeneutics, post-structuralism and semiotic analysis, social criticism and psychoanalysis, etc.
The important aspect of Topos publishing policy is multidisciplinary openness, which allows to make visible the relation between philosophical analysis and other social sciences and humanities studies, as well as make this relation even more powerful for fruitful understanding of problems of contemporariness. The journal has a wide thematic scope and is interested in both methodological and empirical studies, dedicated to various aspects of human social experience. In preparing materials and issues the emphasizing is made on the universalist potential of philosophical theories to be gained in the course of locally oriented/funded interpretations.
