Contemporary Studies in Kantian Philosophy, aka CSKP, which is here:, started publication in 2016, now publishes yearly in September, and is the journal of The Contemporary Kantian Philosophy Project, which is home-based online HERE.

Contemporary Kantian philosophy is a fusion of the classical 18th century philosophy of Immanuel Kant and the methods of contemporary philosophy, within an expressly cosmopolitan framework; the range and scope of the problems and topics addressed by contemporary Kantian philosophy are as broad and as deep as the rational human condition itself.

CSKP publishes invited articles on Kant’s philosophy and in contemporary Kantian philosophy, that are normally (but neither exclusively nor necessarily) based on presentations at its annual workshops.

The basic aim of CSKP is to disseminate first-rate, original — and especially challenging, creative, and unorthodox — research in Kant’s philosophy and in contemporary Kantian philosophy, that is freely available to anyone, anywhere, worldwide.

CSKP is online and universal free-access, and can be contacted at this e-address: <>, or via this page:
