The Journal of Theoretical and Philosophical Criminology (JTPC) is an e-journal affiliated with the Department of Criminology and Criminal Justice at Indiana State University. This bi-annual, peer-reviewed journal began publication in the winter of 2009. JTPC examines all facets of law, crime, punishment, justice from the interpersonal to the institutional, from the communal to the global. The Journal especially welcomes the submission of unsolicited manuscripts that incorporate the theoretical and/or methodological contributions of existential-phenomenology; social constructionist; GLBT theory; postmodernism, deconstructionism, and semiotics; critical feminist and/or race-based analyses; anarchism; peacemaking and restorative justice, and all others perspectives that seek to specify the philosophical and cultural foundations of criminology and criminological practice/policy.
The Editorial Board of JTPC consists of an internationally renowned group of scholars; including, among others, Ken Adams, Robert Agnew, Bruce Arrigo, Gregg Barak, Michael Braswell, Jeff Ferrell, John Fuller, Mark Hamm, Jack Katz, Ronnie Lippens Hans Toch, Chris Aanstoos, Fred Wertz, and Terry Kupers. The main focus and interest of this journal is to provide both established and emerging schalors the oppounity to publish ideas and research generally absent in traditoinal criminological inquiry. JTPC will publish special issues as well as featured-text commentary issues, subject to the discretion of the Editor-in-Chief and the Editorial Board. Proposals for such issues are certainly welcomed.

Toward a Humanistic Criminology: Problems and Prospects.
