Animus aims at a philosophical understanding of the works of Western civilization and contemporary views of these works. It seeks to promote a standpoint which is critical of dogmatic positions both within contemporary views and within the Western tradition itself. It considers relevant to its purpose not only studies of philosophical works in a stricter sense but also contributions to a clarification in the same spirit of theological, literary, political, scientific and other expressions of the tradition.
