Outline and Concept of the journal "Logical Analysis and History of Philosophy": The journal intends to provide a forum for articles in which classical philosophical texts are interpreted by drawing on the resources of logical analysis. By implementing logical analysis as an instrument of interpretation, the interpretive focus shifts from the more common, purely exegetical approach towards a given text to the systematic reconstruction of a theory that concerns the pertinent issues discussed. Characteristically, such a reconstruction establishes plausible interpretive criteria, which make it possible to ascribe to the author a systematic theory. Such a theory can then be carefully elucidated and developed further. In this way, novel questions can be put to an author, and profitably pursued within the framework of the established logical reconstruction. On the whole, this approach promises to shed new light on classical texts, making them even more fruitful in dealing with the controversial issues of modern philosophy.
