Journal of Political Ideologies


The Journal of Political Ideologies is dedicated to the analysis of political ideology both in its theoretical and conceptual aspects, and with reference to the nature and roles of concrete ideological manifestations. The journal promotes research into political ideologies, which are indispensable to the understanding of political thought within social, temporal and spatial contexts. It emphasizes both the general phenomenon of ideologies and their particular instances. In parallel, it underlines that political action, processes and institutions are endowed with ideological import and shaped to a considerable extent by political ideologies. The indeterminacy of the notion of ideology is recognized, concerned as it is with epistemological issues of truth, distortion and dissimulation and with sociological phenomena of power, dominance and exploitation, as well as with functional questions, denoting action-oriented political thinking. Significant attention is also given to analyzing ideologies in terms of their actual histories, geographical and cultural expression and to interpreting the idea-patterns of particular ideological variants.
