The Journal

The Project

ProtoSociology is an interdisciplinary journal which crosses the borders of philosophy, social sciences, and their corresponding disciplines for more than two decades. Each issue concentrates on a specific topic taken from the current discussion to which scientists from different fields contribute the results of their research.

Volume 35 – 2018: The Joint Commitment Account:
Critical Essays on the Philosophy of Sociality of Margaret Gilbert with Her Comments
, Gerhard Preyer and Georg Peter


Volume 36 2018 (forthcoming); :Senses of Self Approaches to Pre-Reflective Self-Awareness, Marc Borner, Manfred Frank, and Kenneth Williford

ProtoSciology cooperates now with the Philosophy Documentation Center to provide easy online access for institutional and single users.

ProtoSociology is further a project that examines the nature of mind, language and social systems. In this context theoretical work has been done by investigating such theoretical concepts like interpretation and (social) action, globalization, the global world-system, social evolution, and the sociology of membership. Our purpose is to initiate and enforce basic research on relevant topics from different perspectives and traditions.
