"A quarterly journal of radical thought". Founded by Paul Piccone (1940-2004) in 1968 while a doctoral student in philosophy at the State University of New York, Buffalo. After earning his doctorate in 1970, he moved to St. Louis for a teaching job, then moved to New York City after not getting tenure. With Piccone as editor, and a number of fellow Buffalo philosophy graduate students and others serving as editorial associates, Telos began publishing important translations (many for the first time), philosophical articles and reviews promoting the Western Marxist tradition, including Frankfurt School critical theory, Phenomenological Marxism, and Marxist Humanism. In the early 1980's Telos began to publish articles that reflected an openness to conservative philosophical and political thought , signaling for many an editorial shift to the political "right" by, for example, publishing articles by and about Carl Schmidt, etc.
No. 47 has a special section on Poland and the future of socialism.
