We started EPIS Press in 2004 with a mission to offer a boutique publishing experience for authors that is different from those of larger presses such as 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 an annual journal in these related fields, and which will continue to produce them, both for professionals and students.
To date, we publish works 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 appeal to the analytical thinker, the therapist/analyst, the philosopher, and the creative artist. In addition, we now work in concert with our radio show, EPIS Radio, “Radio for the Thinking Person,” and have just published our first several volumes from archived transcripts (Radio Conversations on Trans-Humanism, design, and violence).
We have also added titles from the professionals and academics at the BCS Dispute Resolution Research Institute in mediation/negotiation, psychoanalysis, and game theory. As such, we are accepting book titles in these areas that are academic or clinical in focus.
We are 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.
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 who has a thoughtful manuscript in one of these areas 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 as they permeate various genres of literature, theory, philosophy, and clinical practice.
