About the Journal

Krisis is an open access and peer-reviewed journal for contemporary philosophy.

Krisis is a platform for original articles, essays and book reviews with regards to social, cultural and political thought. Krisis is particularly interested in contributions that employ philosophy in understanding current societal, cultural and political developments. Over the last 35 years, Krisis has always published original contributions in political and social philosophy, cultural theory, philosophies of media, science and technology, and empirical philosophy, which was partly created in the Netherlands. Krisis has, from its early beginnings, played an important part in introducing new, upcoming thinkers in the Netherlands. Theorists such as Etienne Balibar, Seyla Benhabib, Jodi Dean, Sally Haslanger, Axel Honneth and Bruno Latour published with Krisis.

In offering a space for philosophers working in the Netherlands and beyond to engage a wide, international public, Krisis publishes in Dutch and in English.  Krisis seeks to enable serious, theoretical reflection immersed in and informed by societal and political contexts, locally and around the world. 

As a forum for current and critical engagement with public issues, Krisis originates from a European philosophical tradition that takes its public task to heart and continues to uphold an active role in a range of public debates, in the Netherlands and elsewhere.  To this end, Krisis also acknowledges and actively aims to address historical and ongoing biases in the study and practice of philosophy as much as in the production and publication of philosophical research: Krisis is committed to encouraging contributions from those who experience barriers in academia due to race, language, gender, ethnicity, disability, or class, as well as to attuning editorial and review processes to foster creative, inclusive and pluriversal ways of knowing.
