SYMPHILOSOPHIE: International Journal of Philosophical Romanticism is a quadrilingual, open-access and peer-reviewed journal for new academic research on German romantic philosophy. The journal is above all placed under the banner of the philosophy of Frühromantik, or Early German Romanticism. Accordingly, the authors especially to be treated are the principal thinkers of philosophical romanticism: Friedrich Schlegel, August Wilhelm Schlegel, Novalis (Friedrich von Hardenberg), as well as philosophical writers like Hölderlin, Friedrich Schleiermacher, August Ludwig Hülsen, Ludwig Tieck and K. W. F. Solger.

These thinkers are to be considered from the different philosophical perspectives present in their works: e.g. in terms of epistemology, metaphysics, nature, ethics, aesthetics, anthropology, history, politics, religion, and so on, and/or in relation to other philosophical streams and figures such as Plato, Spinoza, Kant, Fichte, Herder, Hemsterhuis, Schelling, Hegel etc. SYMPHILOSOPHIE also accords an important place to the writings of the female thinkers of romanticism, including among others: Caroline Schlegel, Dorothea Veit, Karoline von Günderrode, Sophie Mereau, Bettina von Arnim, or Madame de Staël.

Research articles are subject to double-blind peer review. 

All submitted texts must adhere to the submission guidelines of the journal:, and the journal’s code of ethics: Any submission not following these guidelines will not be considered. 

In September 2020 we launched the “Preprint” section on the journal’s website, where certain articles may be viewed online that have already passed the peer-review process and are awaiting their final publication.

The second issue of SYMPHILOSOPHIE on “The Women Writers of Philosophical Romanticism” will be published in December 2020.
