Stasis publishes articles on social and political philosophy and theory. It pursues an aim of expanding research and spreading it among the educated public. The journal strives to uncover and describe the large-scale tendencies of social processes in the contemporary world. The journal seeks to provide an international intellectual format that can open a common space between the English- and Russian-language philosophical traditions. It helps authors to achieve excellence through its detailed peer-reviewed and editing process.

The title, Stasis, means at once a particular position, an interrupting suspension, and an uprising. The journal thus represents an eccentric and estranged standpoint which considers things and events while always holding in view the possibility of revolutionizing them. Far from defending a stagnation, Stasis thus suggests a sudden interruption of the hectic inertial motion, in a move of reflection and contestation.
