Call for Papers 2022


In bombed-out London, Virginia Woolf saw the need to “think peace into existence” so that no one would ever again have to listen to the roar of deadly planes and bomb explosions. Was she a dreamer? A figure “from the Moon”?  After all, “[p]acifist are people from the Moon. They do not understand that if there were no strong resistance against dictatorship, fascism, communism, pacifism could not exist”*— said Marek Edelman.   

Si vis pacem, para bellum? — This is one of the questions we want to ask.  

Or perhaps - this is another question — pacifists understand more than Edelman supposed and that is why they stand for peace and against war? But what is this ‘more’?

The online philosophical magazine Hybris published by the Institute of Philosophy of the University of Lodz in association with the Centre for Philosophical Research was created in 2001. The first two issues have been published by Bogdan Banasiak and Tomasz Sieczkowski. Since the third issue the position of the editor-in-chief had been taken up by Mateusz Oleksy. Since 2007, thanks to Mateusz Oleksy, Hybris has started coming out as the quarterly journal and the double-blind peer reviewing process has been started. In the autumn of 2008, after Mateusz Oleksy's tragic death, Paweł Grabarczyk and Tomasz Sieczkowski have taken up the positions of the editors-in-chief. At the moment, journal comes out as the quarterly. Since the eleventh issue, Hybris has been recognised by the Ministry of Science and Higher Education list of academic periodicals.
According to the current list of the scientific periodicals, published by the Ministry of Science and Higher Education on 31st of July 2019, Hybris’ authors are owed 20 points for their publications in our magazine. Since the twenty-fourth issue (2014) Hybris has been published in the cooperation with the Centre for Philosophical Research.

Since the first edition our magazine has been dedicated to the broadly defined philosophical subject matter. Our aim is to promote the original philosophical ideas as well as the philosophical community integration. Except from the original articles, the journal publishes interviews with a philosophers, reviews of the latest philosophical works, and translations of the little-known but still interesting philosophical texts that might be useful in a didactic process.

We would like to inform that as the journal doesn’t have its printed form all the publications from the website are the original (referential) versions.
