“Kantovskij Sbornik” (KSb) today is an all-Russian scientific journal devoted mainly to different aspects of theoretical and practical philosophy of I. Kant as well as to its receptions in international and Russian science and culture, its impact on social and political development of society. The history of its publishing extends back for almost 40 years. The starting point of KSb was the first Kant Readings devoted to Kant’s 240th anniversary which took place in the Kaliningrad university in 1974. Following the results of Kant Readings in 1975 collection of works “Issues of theoretical legacy of Immanuel Kant. Vol. 1” was published. This name was used for publishing the collection as an annual publication until 1980. Starting the next year as a result of the suggestion made by professor A.Gulyga the collection was renamed “Kantovskij Sbornik”. Until 2006 the collection was published as an annual publication. Not only the materials of Kant Readings, but also new translations of Kant’s, Hegel’s and Fichte works and articles of leading Russian, German and American Kant researchers could be found in them. From the very first issue until 2005 professor Leonard Kalinnikov has been its editor in chief.
2008 was an important year for KSb. It started to come out twice a year as a periodic scientific journal and appeared in the subscription list of Russian periodicals. It featured several new sections: “Receptions of Kant’s Philosophy”, “Neo-Kantianism”, “Logic and Argumentation Theory”, “Social and Cultural Philosophy” and “Historic Research. Archives. Documents”. Also sections on scientific discussions, criticism and bibliography, as well as on philosophic life in the country and in the world were introduced.
Simultaneously Kant Institute for research was created in Immanuel Kant State University of Russia in order to develop Kant studies, translate philosophic texts and promote Kant’s philosophy. KSb in its turn became a media tool for the Institute. Since 2010 the journal has been coming out 4 times a year and has been included in the list of State Commission for Academic Degrees and Titles. The journal features articles by leading Russian Kant researchers – V. Zhuchkov, V. Vasilyev, A. Chernov, T. Oyzerman, A. Krugov, В Razeyev and others, as well as translations by J. Habermas, B. Doerflinger, A. Honneth, R. Howell and others. «Publications» section contains various materials never available for Russian readers before. For example, it featured some brand new translations of works of I. Kant, P. Natorp, M. Mendelson, the translation of correspondence between I. Kant and G. Hamann, etc.
