Orbis Idearum, Volume 5, Issue 1 (2017) is a regular issue. As such, it has no topic, no title, no limitations to a particular theme. It is open to any contribution belonging to the history of ideas. The history of ideas is an academic specialty with its own object of study and its own methodology, and it is not to be confused with disciplines such as the history of philosophy, the history of science, the history of literature, the history of art, etc. The traditional work of the historian of ideas is the reconstruction of the path of an idea (typically, a word-and-concept), in a certain period of time, through different disciplines (philosophy, science, literature, art, etc.). That is why we often say that the history of ideas is an “inter-discipline.”
