RESISTANCES. Journal of the Philosophy of History is a refereed academic journal, which uses the continuous publication system, publishing two issues per year (January-June and July-December) in Spanish, Portuguese, and English. It is edited by the Centro de Investigaciones en Humanidades y Ciencias Sociales de América Latina (CICSHAL-RELIGACIÓN), a center associated with CLACSO.
