Testimonials from Telos Readers

"In an environment in which few independent publishers survive, Telos continues to fulfill an important mission within the fabric of scholarly communication by providing an outlet to new authors in critical analysis, in addition to transmitting the work of well-established scholars."

Sebastian Hierl

Librarian for Western Europe, Harvard College Library

"Telos is an intellectually provocative quarterly that dares to present unpopular views and truths."

George Schwab

President, National Committee on Foreign Policy

"Telos remains provocative and independent in a time of intellectual banality."

Jerry Brown

Governor, State of California

"I have been reading Telos off and on since my college days, and Telos and Telos Press were my first exposures to so many new (and old!) ideas and thinkers. What amazing work you all have done these many years. And I am so particularly excited now that I am rediscovering Telos and your press (the Schmitt Nomos book being a happy find some years ago) that your work embraces fascinating thinkers from such a wide spectrum—from the Frankfurt School to Schmitt! From Baudrillard to Radical Orthodoxy! In a world where most people, even most intellectuals, seem determined only to preach to the converted, or to hear what they already think, it is such a true pleasure to be opened and challenged like this."

Adam Simon

American Screenwriter and Film Director

"From the standpoint of a European academic, Telos is a journal of culture and politics of the highest intellectual quality. I wonder whether a better one can be found in the Anglo-Saxon public sphere. With its interests in philosophical, hermeneutical, and theoretical tendencies in general, but also in political thoughts and events, it never loses its critical distance."

Karl Heinz Bohrer

Professor for Aesthetics and European Literature, University of Bielefeld

"Telos has managed to do something that few others have accomplished, both an openness to truth and a willingness to take a hard look at what is thought about it."

James V. Schall, S.J.

Department of Government, Georgetown University

"The eclectic mind is a civilized mind and in these days of overspecialization and narrowly focused research it is a wonder to find a journal like Telos, which ranges from the humanities to the social sciences with stylistic elegance and intellectual depth. The journal brings together some of the best writers and opinion-makers, and offers its readers a feast of ideas. Enjoy!"

Christopher Coker

Professor of International Relations, London School of Economics

"Telos is the bravest critical theory journal in the world and one of the few ready to confront the challenges of the twenty first century, including contemporary Iran, American decline, and the rise of China. It is free from dogma and prepared to publish new authors with something disturbing to say. At a time when social and political thought are failing to map our present, Telos sharpens our grasp of the issues and pushes us forward to new and less illusory places. I recommend it with enthusiasm."

Wayne Hudson

Professor, Charles Sturt University

"Telos is essential reading for anyone who wants to follow intellectual developments in Europe. The now widely regarded writings in English of Pierre-Andre Taguieff, Jeffrey Herf, Matthias Küntzel, Franklin Adler, and Russell Berman on European antisemitism and anti-Americanism first appeared in Telos. It's a journal that's consistently ahead of the curve."

Fred Siegel

The Manhattan Institute and Scholar in Residence at St. Francis College

"Telos maintains a truly global perspective and a universal range of sympathies. It is one of the very few remaining morally uncensored forums for open political discussion. One suspects that, in these dark times, its best days are yet to come!"

John Milbank

Research Professor for Politics, Religion, and Ethics, University of Nottingham

"Telos journal and conferences are for the intellectually curious and daring. For many years, this journal has sustained a vibrant and important intellectual community for those not satisfied with an increasingly homogeneous academic scene."
