About 20 philosophy articles are published annually. Deadline is on 31 August. Contributions in any area of classical European thought and crossdisciplinary studies are welcome. Purely philosophical works are invited. Manuscripts are refereed blind, but average evaluation time is two to three months. Preference is given to manuscripts in early and classical Greek thinking, in the area of phenomenology and hermeneutical philosophy, and in the philosophy of Husserl and Heidegger. In the case of articles on ancient philosophy we prefer discussion to be closely linked to the original texts.

Articles intended for publication should be submitted in duplicate, and on a CD in Microsoft Word format for Windows. We cannot accept articles submitted in any other format. No CD and manuscript is returnable. Only original papers will be published in first edition. Responsibility for the views expressed in this international journal of philosophy remains solely with the authors. Manuscripts must be signed on the first and last pages. Contributors are requested to give the exact postal address they wish mail to be sent to.

We can send proofs back to authors on their request only if the text has been received by us before August 1. Proofs corrected by authors must be received by us before September 1; should they be received later they cannot be taken into consideration. If the editors do not receive the corrected proofs before the date indicated, the text will be corrected on the basis of the manuscript, but then the author is responsible for all mistakes due to the original manuscript.

Contributions, essays and critiques are accepted in English and German, but very occasionally also in French, Italian or Hungarian.

But we do not print a bibliography at the end of an article, references should be made as notes at first occurrences, to which later references may be made. Contributions not written in English should be accompanied by a short abstract in English of approximately 400 words.

Manuscripts must be typed, including Greek and Hebrew quotations. Text containing Greek and Hebrew words should be sent with the font types attached. Text should be printed in a well known font in all cases, possibly in Times or Times New Roman.

All texts, including notes, should be written doublespaced, with wide margins on all sides. Notes should be assembled on separate sheets, and articles should not be given long titles if possible.

For questions of reference and for abbreviations of classical authors and periodicals, please consult «L’Année Philologique».

Authors of articles will receive twenty hand-made offprints of their article without charge. Additional offprints may be ordered when the proofs are returned to the publisher.

All book-reviews are invited. Unsolicited book reviews are welcome. Preference is given to book review-essays. All articles and correspondence should be sent not only by e-mail (editor-in-chief@there-being.com), but also by registered and guaranteed post mail to the postal address of the Editorial Office:
