It is a Filipino, peer-reviewed, interdisciplinary, and international journal of philosophy founded in 2007 by a group of UST graduates. The journal seeks to publish articles and book reviews by local and international authors across the whole range of philosophical topics, but with special emphasis on the following subject strands: Filipino Philosophy, Oriental Thought and East-West Comparative Philosophy, Continental European Philosophy, and Anglo-American Philosophy.

The journal primarily caters to works by professional philosophers and graduate students of philosophy, but welcomes contributions from other fields (literature, cultural studies, gender studies, political science, sociology, history, anthropology, economics, inter alia) with strong philosophical content.

The word “kritike” is Greek, from the verb “krinein,” which means to discern. Hence, kritike means the art of discerning or the art of critical analysis. Any form of philosophizing is, in one way or another, a “critique” of something. Being critical, therefore, is an attitude common to all philosophical traditions. Indeed, the meaning of philosophy is critique and to be philosophical is to be critical.
