The Kantian Journal  is a scientific journal with more than forty years of history. The Journal is published by the Academia Kantiana, a research subdivision of the Immanuel Kant Baltic Federal University’s Institute for Humanities. The central focus of the Academia’s research programme is the study of Immanuel Kant’s philosophy and its reception in Russian and other philosophical traditions, along with the history of Russian Neo-Kantianism, and the study of the Enlightenment project and its relevance for the twenty first century.
The Editorial Board consists of the members of the world’s leading research institutions, prominent Kant scholars, and specialists in Neo-Kantian and Enlightenment philosophy.

The Journal’s History

  • The Journal was founded under the title of “Problems of Immanuel Kant’s Theoretical Legacy” (issues 1-5) in 1975 as the proceedings of the “Kant Readings” conference that took place for the first time in Kaliningrad in 1974, commemorating Immanuel Kant’s 250th birthday.
  • From 1981 to 2006 (issues 6–26) the journal was published annually as “Kantovskii Sbornik: An Inter-Institutional Thematic Collection of Academic Works”
  • From 2008 to 2010 the Journal published two issues / volumes / numbers a year.
  • Since 2010 the Journal is published quarterly.
  • Since 2018 all papers in the Journal are published in both Russian and English or German. The Journal’s names in Russian and English are Kantovskii Sbornik and Kantian Journal respectively.

The Content of the Journal is formed by research articles dedicated to various aspects of Kant’s philosophy, its reception, critique and transformation within different philosophical traditions, and its applicability to solving both scientific and critical problems that are relevant today. Besides this, the Journal’s thematic focus also includes the studies of Neo-Kantianism and of Enlightenment philosophy and the perspectives of its revival in contemporary intellectual discourse.
The expected audience of the Journal is the philosophical community – from graduate and undergraduate students to influential specialists.

Structure of the Journal


The main section of the Journal, which consists of original research papers whose theme falls under one of these categories:

Kant’s Philosophy;
Kant: pro et contra;
Philosophy of the Enlightenment and its Relevance.


The section in which the results of historical research on Kant, Neo-Kantianism or the Enlightenment are published. Priority is given to the first publication of archive or the republication of hard-to-come-by texts accompanied by an introduction and commentary. The translations of documentary or historical sources of a smaller volume which have not been translated into Russian before may also be accepted for publication.


As the name suggests, is reserved for publishing conversations with prominent scholars specialising in Kant or other themes of interest for the Kantian Journal. The aim of these interviews is to clarify the characteristics of the proposed interpretations, the contents of the developed concepts and the perspectives of the current research projects, along with discussion of other questions related to the current situation in philosophy.


It is for papers which offer polemical analysis of a specific concept or problem, that has already been stated in an academic publication (e.g. a book or an article).


Reviews of the books published in Russia or abroad within the last decade and related to the thematic scope of the Journal are published in a separate section. Priority is given to reviews that do not only transmit the contents of the reviewed book, but also analyse its most interesting perspective claims and hypotheses.

Conference Reports

In this section presents the analytic reports of Russian or international academic events related to Kant scholarship, Neo-Kantianism or to the philosophy of the Enlightenment.


Announcements of upcoming academic events, such as seminars, conferences, congresses, presentations, as well as dissertation defences, publication of new monographs or translations related to the Journal’s thematic scope are published in a separate section.

All sections excluding the “Articles” do not necessarily appear in every issue of the Journal. Their presence depends on the content of the materials submitted by the authors. The baltic accent
