Metalogos is a six monthly journal – the first systemic journal in Greece ! - which has been issued by the Systemic Association of Northern Greece since 2002. Having the “Sciences of Psyche” - especially Psychotherapy – as its basic context of reference, the Journal attempts to support the Systemic Paradigm within the wider community of knowledge. Metalogos was named after Gregory Bateson’ s homonymous notion which he defines as “a dialectic discussion about problematic issues”. Metalogos, a kind of reflective discourse, like a continuous exercise through script which attempts to test the limits of logos – because logos does not only mean, introduce, reveal but it also conceals...

The journal Metalogos has been a collective construction hoping (to continue) to make a contribution to the shaping of an identity of the Greek Systemic Area in collaboration with readers and authors/creators.

Brill´s New Pauly is the English edition of the authoritative Der Neue Pauly, published by Verlag J.B. Metzler since 1996. The encyclopaedic coverage and high academic standard of the work, the interdisciplinary and contemporary approach and clear and accessible presentation have made the New Pauly the unrivalled modern reference work for the ancient world. The section on Antiquity of Brill´s New Pauly are devoted to Greco-Roman antiquity and cover more than two thousand years of history, ranging from the second millennium BC to early medieval Europe. Special emphasis is given to the interaction between Greco-Roman culture on the one hand, and Semitic, Celtic, Germanic, and Slavonic culture, and ancient Judaism, Christianity, and Islam on the other hand. The section on the Classical Tradition is uniquely concerned with the long and influential aftermath of antiquity and the process of continuous reinterpretation and revaluation of the ancient heritage, including the history of classical scholarship. Brill´s New Pauly presents the current state of traditional and new areas of research and brings together specialist knowledge from leading scholars from all over the world. Many entries are elucidated with maps and illustrations and the English edition will include updated bibliographic references.
