The periodical Wisdom was the official journal of the International Research Institute for Metaphilosophy, Transformational Logic and Theory of Argumentationat Khachatur Abovian Armenian State Pedagogical University (ASPU). The founder-president of the Institute, Chief Editor of the periodical Wisdom academician Georg Abel BRUTIAN passed away on December 8, 2015 at the age of 89. After the death of the world’s famous scientist, who was an irreplaceable figure for the Armenian philosophical community, the Institute was dissolved and the Department of Philosophy and Logic of ASPU assumed further fulfillment of the Institute’s activity, particularly the publication of the periodical. It was possible and realistic as the scientific-research fields of studies of the Department were grounded on the Institute’s scientific directions. The lecturers of Philosophy and Logic Department are Georg Brutian’s students of different generations. They were members of the Institute, involved in research and organizational activities, as well as the members of Editorial Board of Wisdom.
It is included in the list of the scientific periodical recognized by the Supreme Certifying Commission of the Republic of Armenia among other rated periodicals that address fundamental results and theses of dissertations (Doctor of Science & Ph.D degree dissertations).
The Wisdom is published twice a year, and the aim of the journal is to serve as a scientific platform for valuable scientific ideas and research results, for discussions and debates on respective results, as well as for introducing promising researchers and investigations to the scientific community.
Taking into consideration the direct correlation between the efficiency of solutions on social transformations and the major investigations on pertinent issues, the journal highlights, in particular, both the researches in humanitarian, sociological and philosophical realms and the publication of articles, which include justified visions deriving from pertinent investigations.
The first and the second volumes of the journal represent mainly the texts of the basic reports introduced at the International Conference on Theoretical and Practical Issues of the Transforming Society Development: philosophical and psychological aspects (April 16-17, 2012). The papers are compiled within corresponding sections of the journal, in accordance with the two sections that the Conference majored on: Philosophical and Psychological Sections.
The positive feedback and noteworthy observations to the first and the second issues confirm the significance and value of the publications involved. The editorial board cannot but express their appreciation to the authors of the articles, reviewers, the authors of feedbacks, as well as to the administration of Khachatur Abovian Armenian State Pedagogical University for their support in publishing.
In view of the crucial principles of pluralism and freedom of speech, the editorial board deems necessary to state that the authors have primary responsibility for the viewpoints and statements introduced, which may not necessarily always coincide with those of the editorial board.
The editorial board will publish in the website of WISDOM the content of volumes, the abstracts of the articles, the key words, in particular cases selected articles. The instructions for the authors who would like to cooperate with the journal by publishing the results of their investigations in journal will also be presented in the website.
