Aisthesis. Pratiche, linguaggi e saperi dell’estetico

Founded in 2008 by Fabrizio Desideri and Giovanni Matteucci, «Aisthesis. Pratiche, linguaggi e saperi dell’estetico» is a peer-reviewed Open Access Journal whose focal aim is to promote interdisciplinary and transcultural research and debate in Aesthetics and the arts. Transcending traditional subject boundaries and understanding the notion of "aesthetic" as a pervasive component of human cultures and life forms, Aisthesis innovatively integrates a major focus on the intersection between aesthetics and the contemporary sciences (biology, psychology, neurosciences) with an in-depth interest in the history of the discipline, its leading classics and great metaphysical questions.

The journal appears biannually, in spring and autumn, and welcomes insightful academic articles and timely book reviews. Each issue includes a thematic cluster and a miscellany; call for papers are regularly announced on the journal website. "Aisthesis" is indexed, among others, in The Philosopher's Index, SCOPUS, PhilPapers, Google Scholar, and WoS Clarivate.
