Scope & Goals

Estudios Libertarios is an open-access academic journal that emerged with the purpose of addressing the contemporary society problems from the intellectual rigor offered by the Austrolibertarian tradition. As part of its editorial philosophy, it aims to generate a meeting point between libertarian scholars worldwide and the most outstanding minds of this branch of political philosophy, who participate in each edition with invited submissions or translations of works already published.

Like 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 the groundwork and the application of libertarianism, and we hope that some day the “Science of Liberty”, as Rothbard called it, is 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, georgism, left-wing free-market anarchism, and the non-coercive factions of anarcho-syndicalism . We encourage the study of the Austrian School of Economics, although we value the contributions of other schools such as Public Choice Theory, constitutional economics, economic analysis of Law, Chicago School, experimental economics, neo-institutionalism and econophysics.

Goals:

  • To contribute to the theoretical strengthening of libertarianism.
  • To disseminate the principles of a free society.
  • To foster the study of libertarianism in the Hispanic world.
  • To encourage the exchange of ideas among libertarian scholars from around the world.
