Erkenntnis is a philosophical journal publishing papers committed in one way or another to the philosophical attitude which is signified by the label "analytic philosophy". It concentrates on those philosophical fields which are particularly inspired by this attitude, although other topics are welcome as well. Currently we cover topics like: epistemology, philosophies of science, logic and language, ontology, philosophical psychology and practical philosophy. In recent years, philosophers standing quite outside the pale of analytic philosophy have also paid careful, and indeed most welcome, attention both to precision of concept and language, and to well-grounded foundations. Erkenntnis provides for them, and for philosophers of all persuasions, a place of meeting, of discussion, and of disputation.
