About us

The journal and the research project Protosociology evolves out of the teaching of Gerhard Preyer at the Goethe-University Frankfurt, Germany. Since 1991 the project publishes single journals, books, and readers together with colleagues in the field of sociology, philosophy, philosophy (theory) of language, and the theory of science. The subjects are focused on the changes and tendencies of the last four decades but also on the background of the system of knowledge of this time. Protosociology is an inter- and transdisciplinary project with a co-operative style. It promotes the free exchange within the scientific community and the interplay of theoretical and empirical studies.
