Janus Head. A Journal of Interdisciplinary Studies in Continental Philosophy, Literature, Phenomenological Psychology and the Arts <>




JANUS HEAD 10.1 (Summer 2007) - Open Issue


Deadline for submissions: February 1, 2006.


JANUS HEAD is currently accepting submission for its next open issue. JH follows APA guidelines for its review process (peer review).


In general, Janus Head editors and reviewers look for works which speak to the Janus Head attitude of "respect and openness to the various manifestations of truth in human experience and the fostering of understanding through meditative thinking, narrative structure, and poetic imagination."


Janus Head is an interdisciplinary journal that places emphasis on the intersections among literature, continental philosophy, phenomenological psychology, and the arts. Our board welcomes the submission of innovative work from authors and artists who take risks to create fruitful dialogue among the disciplines of the academy.
