TELOS ~ 40 Years

When I first began to read political theory as an undergraduate, the journal TELOS was perhaps the primary outlet for various dissident themes and writers. I have not read the journal much over the past decade or so, in large part because it seems to (more or less uncritically) grasp at virtually any non- or anti-individualist intellectual current that pops up. That said, TELOS remains an important independent intellectual journal. And it has survived 40 years now. That is a remarkable accomplishment and a contribution to an increasingly endangered intellectual ecology.
Update: 28 June: I just discovered this appreciation by Russell Jacoby of Paul Piccone who was the moving force behind TELOS until his death in 2004.
