  1. Hi Ben — Thanks for this. Is any informatino about the journal (past Tables of Contents, for example) available on-line?

  2. Absolutely. The inaugural issue came out in June of this year. Everyone is welcome to read or download all the articles in full for the next year.

    Readers can go to the journal’s webpage
    and follow the instructions to set up an account and get free access to the journal. (The “access token” for free viewing is joch4u)

    The first issue was history-oriented. The second is philosophy, and there will be many more philosophy themes in the future.
