Focus and Scope

The scientific scope of Las Torres de Lucca (International Journal of Political Philosophy) will be to comprehend the characteristics of political philosophy, in line with the interdisciplinary character that has operated in this field during the last several years. We welcome contributions from the areas traditionally linked directly to political philosophy (moral philosophy, philosophy of law, political theory), as well as from those that have been incorporated up to the present day (political economy, philosophy of history, psychology, neurophysiology and, to a lesser extent, other sciences) as long as their scope is focused on the treatment of public affairs and sheds light on contemporary political reflections. In the same way, the reference to classic problems should be brought to bear on contemporary questions.

The journal does not commit itself to any school of thought, style or ideology. However, we do commit ourselves to argumentative rigor and expositive clarity. Thus, the new publication is directed towards the academic environment and designed for the specialized reader; but the publication also aspires to awake interest in the reader who is not technically formed in these disciplines, but is interested by the public questions that inevitably affect him or her.

We expect that the scope of the journal will be international. Thus, articles will be published in Spanish and English, and original articles in French, Portuguese, Italian, or German will be accepted as exceptions (depending on their quality and relevance), translated into Spanish and published in a bilingual format.

We are particularly interested in covering the Spanish/Latin American realm, particularly lacking in specialized publications of this type. With this in mind, we count on experts from the distinct countries included in this geographic area.

Research activity in the area of Spanish/Latin American political philosophy is one of the founding aims of this project. We wish to be a place of thought and reflection, divergent and convergent at the same time. We are trying to generate a ubiquitous location for the specialists in these countries: a dynamic stopping point that makes itself a visible community of authors capable of creating quality works, becoming a key reference point in the realm of contemporary international political thought.

Nonetheless, and precisely to reinforce that geographic specificity, the journal wants to flee from the almost proverbial territorial isolation that is inappropriate in the present day. With this objective, the participation of specialists from all over the world will be promoted. Thus, and as a stimulus, relevant figures from one side with emerging values of another will be procured and mixed.

We have opted for electronic publication because we consider the format to be the most effective in the present day, for diverse, obvious reasons.
