Issue 2 of the the Shestov JournalFollowing the launch of the Shestov Studies Society, the first issue of the Shestov Journal came out in 1997, as a bi-lingual (English/ French) publication, that combined the informative role of a newsletter and the wider scope of a magazine devoted to the publication of new critical work as well as to the occasional re-printing of significant exegeses, or even primary texts which are long out of print. So far, five issues of the Shestov journal have been published :


Issue nr. 4-5 is devoted to Shestov's previously unpublished correspondence with Martin Buber. Issue nr. 6 includes the reprint of the article 'Menacing Barbarians of Today', which initially came out in 1934 in the theosophical journal The Aryan Path, and which has never been reprinted in a volume. Issue nr. 8 is devoted to Rachel Bespaloff's work and its relationship to Lev Shestov's thought. Issue nr. 9 includes several articles and previously unpublished documents concerning Benjamin Fondane's relationship to Shestov. Issue nr. 10 gathers the proceedings of the conference entitled Audaces et insoumissions: penser l'existence avec Emile Cioran et Vladimir Jankélévitch organised at the Maison de la recherche de la Sorbonne in Aprill 2010(see Subscriptions).
