Cover of Phainomena, the preeminent journal for phenomenological and hermeneutic philosophy in Slovenia, 2012
Phainomena is a quarterly journal devoted to the study of and translation in the areas of phenomenology, hermeneutics, social hermeneutics, philosophy of religion, the theory of science, the philosophy of art, the history of philosophy and the philosophy of culture. It has been published since 1992 by the Phenomenological Society of Ljubljana and the Institute Nova revija, while the international editions are published in cooperation with the O.P.O. – the Organisation of Phenomenological Organisations.
Phainomena is the pre-eminent journal for phenomenological and hermeneutic philosophy in Slovenia and the first of its kind to emerge in Central and Eastern Europe after the fall of the Berlin Wall. It brings together philosophers, academics and researchers from Slovenia and worldwide in an effort to open a space for new discussion, dialogue and perspectives. This process is bound with the body of the European spiritual tradition but also transcends its boundaries and frames. Also notable are translations of seminal philosophical texts and treatises into Slovenian, which greatly contribute to and advance Slovenian philosophical terminology. Some of the authors translated include: Aristotle, Freud, Derrida, Heidegger and Nietzsche.
Phainomena's website features an archive of past issues and, also noteworthy, a forum that fosters reflection, discussion and commentary as well as provides a range of information relating to this sphere of knowledge.
The journal Phainomena is indexed in: the Philosopher's Index; Scopus; Sociological Abstracts; Social Services Abstracts; Worldwide Political Science Abstracts; Linguistics and Language Behavior Abstracts; Internationale Bibliographie der geistes- und sozialwissenschaftlichen Zeitschriftenliteratur; Internationale Bibliographie der Rezensionen geistes- und sozialwissenschaftlicher Literatur; Social Science Information Gateway; Humanities International Index; Ulrich's Periodicals Directory; EBSCO; ProQuest; Digital Library of Slovenia (dLib.si); Revije.si.
