An International Journal for Epistemology, Methodology and Philosophy of Science

Publishing model:

Aims and scope

Synthese is a philosophy journal focusing on contemporary issues in epistemology, philosophy of science, and related fields. More specifically, we divide our areas of interest into four groups: (1) epistemology, methodology, and philosophy of science, all broadly understood. (2) The foundations of logic and mathematics, where ‘logic’, ‘mathematics’, and ‘foundations’ are all broadly understood. (3) Formal methods in philosophy, including methods connecting philosophy to other academic fields. (4) Issues in ethics and the history and sociology of logic, mathematics, and science that contribute to the contemporary studies Synthese focuses on, as described in (1)-(3) above. In order to be considered in Synthese, manuscripts need to engage in detail with and contribute substantially to the relevant current philosophical literature. Authors should make clear how their work goes beyond what has already been done in the relevant field.
