The Revue Internationale de Philosophie has been founded in 1938 with the support of Karl Popper and Bertrand Russell. It has been directed until his death, in 1984, by Chaïm Perelman, and since then, it is Michel Meyer who has been in charge.
The aim of this journal is not only to celebrate the anniversary of important philosophers or their works, but also to deepen various problematics that philosophers are used to debate: violence, religion, theatre, politics, history, bioethics, logic, epistemology, rationality, the novel, cinema or aesthetics at large, etc.
The greatest philosophers of the day have been honoured by the Revue and have even contributed to it, from Popper to Foucault and Sartre, from Carnap to Derrida, from Bourdieu to Putnam or Dworkin, from Gadamer to Rawls, Habermas or Searle.
The Revue publishes single volumes that are self-sustaining issues, using various languages but mostly French and English. Contributors are invited by a major figure in the field, who is the guest-editor of the volume.
