The Romanian Journal of Analytic Philosophy is a peer-review journal which aims to bring together the contributions of analytically oriented philosophers in every field of philosophy: metaphysics, logic, epistemology, philosophy of language, philosophy of mind, ethics, political philosophy, history of philosophy, aesthetics, etc. We use analytic philosophy „in a broad sense”, as it is proposed by the European Society of Analytic Philosophy.
