Magazine for philosophy.
“lointain” stands for the question of how philosophy is characterized as a form of thinking – as a critical work of thinking about itself. The name expresses the fact that this question has always referred us to a thought that has been negotiated many times in the philosophical tradition and yet has lost nothing of its topicality: to what extent real proximity – in the sense of an adequate understanding of ourselves and the possibility of knowledge in general – is possible only in the return from the radically different, an irrevocable distance.
