"Protosociology occupies an important position in the European intellectual scene, bridging philosophy, economics, sociology and related disciplines. Its volumes on rationality bring together concerns in all these topics, and present an important challenge to the cognitive
sciences." Donald Davidson, Berkeley (USA)
"Protosociology publishes original papers of great interest that deal with fundamental issues in the human and social science. No academic library is complete without it." Nicholas Rescher, Pittsburgh (USA)
"Protosociology has been remarkably successful in publishing interesting
work from different tradition and different disciplines and, as the title signals, in giving that work a new, eye-catching slant." Philipp Pettit, Canberra, Australia
"Protosociology is a truly premier interdisciplinary journal tha publishes articles and reviews on timely topics written by and for a wide range of international scholars. The recent volumes on rationality are remarkable for their breadth and depth. Protosociology would be a great addition to any library." Roger Gibson, St. Louis (USA)
