About This Special Issue
International Journal of Philosophy (ISSN Print:2330-7439 ISSN Online: 2330-7455), a peer-reviewed journal, is currently running a special issue entitled "Evolutionity”. Evolutionity is a new evolutionary epoch which is to replace modernity and postmodernity. Its idea has been introduced in W. Julian Korab-Karpowicz’ Tractatus Politico-Philosophicus (Routledge 2017), as well as in his journal articles, most recently “The Clash of Epochs: Traditional, Modern, Postmodern, and Evolutionity” (Perspectives on Political Science, 48.3, 2019). While modernity was inspired by the mechanistic and deterministic view of the universe emerging from modern science, and postmodernity, which has been born out of dissatisfaction with modernity, has in turn been characterized by unsolved problems related to globalization, political instability, and a regress to irrationality, evolutionity, as an alternative perspective, is encouraged by the idea of human evolution, and by the holistic worldview.
For this special issue, we would like to welcome papers addressing evolutionity, human evolution, evolutionary society and politics, and other ideas related to Tractatus Politico-Philosophicus. We will include original research articles (between 4000 and 8000 words in length) and shorter review articles. Please send submissions to

We can then engage in conscious human evolution, aiming at moral and intellectual perfection. Hence, we can arrive at evolutionity, a new evolutionary epoch whic... Show More
