Throughout modern history, concepts and metaphors of time have been part of the self-conception and self-marketing of countless periodicals. Concentrating on journals and magazines from the German-speaking countries between around 1800 and around 1968, the article outlines a history of the periodical as a subject and object of philosophies of historical time. The cases examined not only show the affinity between periodical theory and the philosophy of history, but also shed light on the specific roles that have been attributed to periodical publishing in varying conceptions of the modern intellectual public sphere.
Keywords: modern intellectual history, periodical theory, philosophy of history, temporality, theory journals, history of philosophy
