    Overview

    Human and Social Studiesis a journal of ideas. It is extremely important to have our own ideas and to share them with other people. Consequently, this journal aims to be an open space that shelters fruitful exchanges of ideas and imparts forms of living knowledge (Indwelling). There are four paths towards knowledge: religion, philosophy, science and art, and we intend to welcome the “pilgrims” wandering on each of them, as the essential thing is to be on the way. Then, the path comes along with our steps while we walk. That is why we set up thematic structures for each path, besides authors’ presentations, reviews and cordial polemics. But, as we conceived it, the journal may have special issues, directed by invited personalities and wholly devoted to special subjects.We shall deeply encourage the papers that express an ethical concern. Preference will also be given to epistemological, ontological and gnoseological inter- and transdisciplinary approaches. The mental mechanisms that have reigned during the latest centuries are dying out, and our society has reached a critical threshold of representation. We are undergoing a metamorphosis, a passage to a new Weltanschauung, to a new type of civilization, that implies a Spirit regeneration, including a human spirit, under the power of the Absolute’s game. As “god alone can recognize a god”, like a Vedic saying asserts. In order to do this, new methods are also required, able to outrun the present plots and hyperspecializations, granting equal pertinence to man and to the community, trying to completely integrate the Man into a coherent representation of the world.
