Journal Description


Basic information



The aim of Contretemps is to enact a philosophical engagement with social and political events. We seek to publish original and insightful work that attest to the contemporary moment and that expands the horizons of critical thought. Departing from the models of exposition and the recycling of the "history of philosophy", Contretemps encourages contributors to read events with, alongside and perhaps against the discipline of philosophy. The objective is to create new ways of responding to events, thus to participate in and reinvent philosophical sociality.
