Thesis Eleven publishes theories and theorists, surveys, critiques, debates and interpretations. The journal also brings together articles on place, region, or problems in the world today, encouraging civilizational analysis and work on alternative modernities from fascism and communism to Japan and Southeast Asia. Marxist in origin, post-Marxist by necessity, the journal is vitally concerned with change as well as with tradition.

Since it was established, the journal has published the work of some of the world's leading theorists including Niklas Luhmann, Alain Touraine, Immanuel Wallerstein, Martin Jay, Richard Rorty and Agnes Heller.

International Coverage

The identity of the journal, like its location, is multiple: European in the continental sense, but also transatlantic and colonial. The journal translates European social theory, mainstream and marginal, and it also takes theory from the margins of the world system to the centres.

A Multidisciplinary Perspective

Thesis Eleven is multidisciplinary, reaching across the social sciences and liberal arts (sociology, anthropology, philosophy, geography, cultural studies, literature and politics) and cultivating a diversity of critical theories of modernity across both the German and French senses of critical theory.

Review Section

Each issue of the journal contains a review section including review articles and reviews of the latest publications in social theory.
