The articles you can access from this page all come from the first 100 issues of Arena, published from 1963 until 1992. They are selections from the writings of the Arena editors and others who played a significant role in developing systematic ideas in the development of Arena’s theory of social being and social transformation. This theory, which has gone through various stages of development, is sometimes referred to as the Arena thesis. In these articles it is developed in relation to various fields, and to pressing questions that came to the fore in the late twentieth century in the context of the rise of new capitalism and the techno-sciences. These questions and theoretical preoccupations have been at the heart of the Arena project for over fifty years.
These selected writings have been made available here since they are not available electronically elsewhere. All Arenas — the first series of Arena, as well as Arena Magazine and Arena Journal — are available in print from the Arena office. All issues of Arena Magazine and Arena Journal are available electronically from Informit.
