Aristos: An Online Review of the Arts

Aristos is an online review of the arts and the philosophy of art.  Like its print predecessor  it is a unique critical voice, advocating objective standards in arts scholarship and criticism, and arguing that the concept of art (in the sense of the traditional fine arts of painting, sculpture, literature, music, and dance) can, and ought to be, objectively defined.

 

Critical of both modernism and postmodernism, Aristos vigorously opposes the increasingly bizarre and inscrutable work promoted in the name of art since the early years of the twentieth century–from abstract painting and sculpture through the seemingly endless concoctions of postmodernism. Aristos also champions contemporary work that, like the significant art of all ages, is concerned with important human values, and is both intelligible and well crafted.

 

Though staunchly independent, the editorial viewpoint of Aristos owes much to the thought of the philosopher-novelist Ayn Rand (1905-1982).  It is aimed at a broad audience of general readers,  

students, critics, and scholars. The fullest explication and application of the philosophy that informs our views is found in What Art Is: The Esthetic Theory of Ayn Rand (Open Court, 2000).

American Dialectic

American Dialectic is an online journal committed to enriching scholarly publication, discourse, and intellectual development in Philosophy and related fields.  As an organization, American Dialectic is devoted to publishing intellectually excellent articles and to promoting the dialectical development of ideas among a broad community of readers.  This is accomplished by combining the best aspects of a traditional publication with the best aspects of a scholarly conference: lead articles are published on their website and then are followed throughout the publication cycle by edited responses that are written and submitted by their readers.

The publications will offer perspectives on the history of philosophy and its inveterate fields while at the same time keeping a mindful eye on important inquiries and novel explorations.  With this in mind, their editing staff will actively seek out those articles that present strong philosophic material that is conducive to the developmental format of American Dialectic.

Research in Language

Research in Language is published by Versita.  The aim of this international journal is to promote ideas in the field of linguistics and language studies. These have always been very broad and diverse fields, which are still broadening now. As other scholarly disciplines, language studies undergo two, seemingly counteracting, processes.

The first is the process of diversification of the field into narrower and narrower domains of specialisation, while the other, resulting from interdisciplinarity, is the process of convergence. It is in fact the latter of the two, aiming to bridge gaps between modular compartments of language studies and to show the multidimensional nature of language, which will be the focus of the journal.

Language in its entirety, not only with its traditional division into phonetics, phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, and pragmatics but its overlaps, borderline areas, relations with vision and other systems, the psychological and social shaping of linguistic convention and creativity, questions of language and the mind, that will find their place in this journal.
