The Hedgehog Review: The Institute for Advanced Studies in Culture

[I discovered this great journal from the Chronicle of Higher Education's 
daily briefing, Academe Today. The article summarized is not online, but I 
discovered that this journal, which eminates from my alma mater, has 
articles that touch transhuman, postmodern, artistic, religious, and other 
themes. I grabbed all that I could and will be doling them out bit by bit 
to all my lists. Something for everyone.]

"There is a line among the fragments of the Greek poet Archilocus
which says, 'The fox knows many things, but the hedgehog knows one big
thing.'"--Isaiah Berlin

Critical Reflections on Contemporary Culture

    Winner of The Best New Journal Award given by the Council of Editors
    of Learned Journals, The Hedgehog Review is an interdisciplinary,
    academic journal that explores the most pressing issues and questions
    of our day. One of the hallmarks of our time is the fragmentation of
    academic inquiry, where the specialization of scholarly pursuit leads
    to ways of thinking and speaking that are increasingly technical,
    insular, and self-confirming. Against these tendencies the Institute
    for Advanced Studies in Culture launched The Hedgehog Review in 1999.
    The journal brings together essays, interviews, bibliographies, and
    book reviews by scholars from throughout the humanities and social
    sciences. By focusing attention from many disciplines of study on one
    issue or question, the journal aims to be a unique resource for those
    concerned with making sense of the puzzles, perplexities, and promise
    of our time.
