    Human Studies is an international quarterly journal dedicated primarily to take forward and enlarge the dialogue between philosophy and the human sciences. Therefore the journal addresses theoretical and empirical topics as well as philosophical investigations in different areas of the human sciences. Phenomenological perspectives and hermeneutical orientations, broadly defined, are the primary focus and frame for published papers. The journal benefits from scholars working in a variety of fields and who seek a forum to address these issues, in order to bridge the gap between philosophical and other modes of inquiry in the human sciences.

    Considering this as the main conceptual aim of Human Studies its wide-ranging interdisciplinary coverage includes contributions from sociology, philosophy, psychology, political science, communication studies, social geography, anthropology, history, and qualitative social research (especially ethnomethodology). A particular accent is set upon communication possibilities between these different perspectives. Thus, interdisciplinary approaches using phenomenology as starting point and reference in trying to analyze and explain the social reality are encouraged and welcome. Both established lines of interpretation and contemporary questions can be used either as basis or subject-matter.

    Human Studies is the official journal of the Society for Phenomenology and the Human Sciences (SPHS).
