About the Journal
Filocracia is a peer-reviewed and independent online journal of philosophy and interdisciplinary studies published twice a year (February and August) and is based in Naga City, in the Bicol Region, South of the island of Luzon in the Philippines. It is envisioned to be another locus where scholars, writers, academics, and researchers, can publish their papers for Internet dissemination. It aims to serve the interests of knowledge and philosophy through the democratization of channels to academic and independent researches that have immense social and philosophical relevance.
Specifically, Filocracia strives to be a welcome venue for a fruitful dialogue between philosophy and other human sciences such as, but not limited to, History, Literature, Humanities, Sociology and Anthropology.
Filocracia is a neologism transliterated from Philokratia [philos/philia (love) + kratia (rule)/kratos (power)] that refers to that rule and power possible when love is made at the center of all human activity. Alluding to the "love of wisdom" which we find in the philosophic life, filocracia rests on that certain "wisdom of love" that can radically challenge the dehumanization and injustice occasioned by the various totalizing technologies affecting modern human life.
