THEORIA:  A Journal of Critical Studies in the Arts, Humanities and
Social Sciences

May 1995:  Number 85:  Markets, States and Justice

pp.166

Based in South Africa, Theoria is a multidisciplinary journal of
engaged theoretical reflection in the arts, humanities and social
sciences.  Its purpose is to address, through scholarly debates, the
many challenges posed to intellectual life by the major social,
political and economic forces that configure the contemporary world.
It is principally concerned with questions such as how modern systems
of power, processes of globalization and economic organization bear
on matters such as justice, democracy, truth and identity, under
conditions both of advanced modernity and of uneven modernization in
the `developing' world.

Theoria 87, May 1996:  REASON, THEORY and HISTORY:  Call for papers:

The claims that history can be "rationally reconstructed" and that it
has some kind of "logic" or "direction" to it are clearly
controversial.  Are these claims in any way sustainable?  What
purpose, if any, might be served through the study of history?  How
might it properly be grasped and with what implications?  What are
the challenges that face history and historiography as we approach
the end of the twentieth century?  In what ways might history be
abused, and what, if anything, does it mean to speak coherently of a
"philosophy of history"?  These, among many others, are the issues
that Theoria #87 will address.
