We started EPIS Press in 2004 with a mission to compete with Karnac, Tavistock, and Routledge, intending to publish manuscripts in phenomenology, psychoanalysis, and critical theory. From 2012 on, we developed the academic journal, Presencing EPIS, which has produced annual journals in these fields since then, and are currently expanding our production.
To date, we have offerings in theory and literature whose basic concern is the human condition and the way humans interface with themselves, other species, and the environment. By producing both theoretical and creative work, our books will appeal to both the analytical think and to the creative artist. We will now be producing titles from the professionals and academics at the Existential Psychoanalytic Institute, as well as the BCS Dispute Resolution Research Institute. We are also in the planning stages for a critical theoretical book series entitled Parrhesia: Incandescent and an avant-garde magazine called The Edge. We also are planning a theoretical journal in innovative dispute resolution design, and works in the radical re-design of the world environment and sustainability. On this note, we work in concert with our radio show, EPIS Radio, “Radio for the Thinking Person,” and have just published our first two volumes from archived transcripts (Radio Conversations on Trans-Humanism).
We are currently in a growth phase both in terms of production and staff, and will be increasing our annual number of titles. We welcome manuscripts from anyone, and will both review and discuss your work if you send it. Our goal is to focus on work concerning subjectivity, the human anthropology, and sustainable transformations in our orientation toward life.
