About the Journal
Aims and Scope
Prajñā Vihāra is a multicultural, pluralistic journal of philosophy and religious studies dedicated to the promotion of mutual understanding among the peoples of the world. In the spirit of the Sanskrit words “Prajñā Vihāra” meaning “temple of wisdom,” the editors encourage creative academic work that promotes a sharing of wisdom among scholars and readers. It welcomes specialized articles in Philosophy, Religion and Cultural Studies that seek to promote harmony between various philosophical and religious traditions while respecting cultural and religious difference. It especially welcomes those articles that exhibit how philosophical and religious ideas can play a role in solving conflict.
The journal offers a forum for challenging but responsible discussion of controversial issues in philosophy and religion. The accuracy of research and scholarship is partly ensured through a double-blind peer review process, but the final responsibility belongs to the authors and not to the editors or the Assumption University of Thailand.
Prajñā Vihāra is a semiannual journal (published twice a year from January to June and from July to December) by the Guna Chakra Research Center, Graduate School of Philosophy and Religion at Assumption University of Thailand. It has been published in a print format since January 2000. Beginning in July 2016 it has been published primarily as an online journal.
