Aisthesis. Pratiche, linguaggi e saperi dell’estetico is a peer-reviewed international journal originated in 2008 from the “Seminario Permanente di Estetica” founded in 2004 in Florence by Fabrizio Desideri and Giovanni Matteucci. The journal publishes academic articles in Italian, English and French, book reviews and notices about conferences. It publishes two issues per year and contains a thematic section, a miscellany, notices and reviews. Each issue contains invited papers and contributed papers. There will be specific ‘Call for papers’ for contributed papers which will be subjected to peer-review. Aisthesis aims to be a public arena devoted to foster research and philosophical discussion, open to anyone who works on practices, languages and knowledge concerning aesthetics. Accordingly, the aim of the journal is to focus on the « aesthetic fact » rather than being related to the discipline «aesthetics» tout court. Thus, the notion of “aesthetic” is understood in several different ways and is seen as an element that permeates cultures and life forms of contemporaneity as well as of modernity and previous periods.
