Estudios Libertarios is a peer-reviewed and open-access journal that emerged with the purpose of addressing the problems of contemporary society from the intellectual rigor of that branch of political philosophy known as libertarianism.
As Murray N. Rothbard, we consider that libertarianism is an emerging discipline that is related to different areas of the study of human action, such as economics, philosophy, political theory, history, and even biology, which provide its theoretical groundwork and scope of application. Likewise, aware of the cultural battle of our time between Power and Liberty, our journal has a special interest in the analysis of literary works from the free-market perspective. All of these areas make up what Rothbard called the “Science of Liberty” a science in the making that, like him, we hope will one day become part of the academic curriculum.
Conscious of the discursive richness of our discipline here we give voice to all its factions: classical liberalism, free-market environmentalism, minarchism, American constitutionalism, objectivism, individualist anarchism, philosophical anarchism, egoist anarchism, anarcho-conservatism, anarcho-traditionalism, transhumanist anarchism, religious anarchism (Jewish, Christian and Buddhist, especially), anarcho-capitalism, panarchism, voluntaryism, agorism, among others. For the sake of academic discussion, we do not exclude the possibility of establishing bridges of dialogue with other philosophical traditions such as mutualism, anarchism without adjectives, anarcho-pacifism, or georgism.
Likewise, we encourage the study of the Austrian School of Economics, although we do not discard the contributions of other schools such as Public Choice Theory, constitutional economics, Law & Economics, Chicago School, experimental economics, neo-institutionalism, and econophysics.
