Das Argument: Zeitschrift für Philosophie und Sozialwissenschaften (English: The Argument: Journal for Philosophy and Social Sciences) is a German academic journal. It was established in 1959 as an independent West German journal of predominantly Marxist orientation. It appears six times a year.

History[edit]

The journal emerged from the protests against West German remilitarization. Since 1959, the editor-in-chief has been the Marxist philosopher Wolfgang Fritz Haug (Free University of Berlin). Das Argument is published by the Berlin Institute of Critical Theory (InkriT).

Scope[edit]

Each issue of the journal is devoted to a specific theme (e.g., in 2006 these have been "American Vistas", "Politics of Literature", "Female Migrants", "Thinking History Globally" and "Big Contradiction China"). The journal contains a substantial review section which is also derived from the original Zeitschrift für Sozialforschung. Among the topics covered are:
