Welcome to Public Reason! Public Reason 5 (1)-02 (Small).jpgPublic Reason is an open access peer-reviewed journal of political and moral philosophy. Public Reason publishes articles, book reviews, as well as discussion notes from all the fields of political philosophy and ethics, including political theory, applied ethics, and legal philosophy. The journal encourages the debate around rationality in politics and ethics in the larger context of the discussion concerning rationality as a philosophical problem.

Public Reason is committed to a pluralistic approach, promoting interdisciplinary and original perspectives as long as the ideal of critical arguing and clarity is respected. The journal is intended for the international philosophical community, as well as for a broader public interested in political and moral philosophy. It aims to promote philosophical exchanges with a special emphasis on issues in, and discussions on the Eastern European space. 

Public Reason publishes two issues per year, in June and December. All articles are available for download as .pdf, .mobi, and .epub, but the journal is also available in print.

We are pleased to announce that Public Reason 5 (2) is now available online at   TOC - Public Reason 5 (2): .. read more
