Academia publishes the annual Comenius Yearbook, which deals with the work, life and influence of Johann Amos Comenius (1592-1670). In addition, the series Philosophieren mit Kindern (Philosophizing with Children) and Bewegtes Lernen (Moving Learning) contain important works, including didactic and methodological ones, for teaching in practice.

The focus here is particularly on ancient philosophy and the “classical” authors Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle. Our established international series of publications such as the International Plato Studies, the International Aristotle Studies and the Eleatica have an impact far beyond European borders due to their multilingualism. But modern philosophy also has a firm place in the publishing program with the Jahrbuch für Hegelforschung (Yearbook for Hegel Research), the Wittgensteiniana, and the West-östliche Denkwege (West-East ways of thinking). With the new series Philosophische Praxis (Philosophy in Practice), founded in 2018, the program has also been expanded to include significant research on current topics related to media literacy and digitization.
