A digital, international and interactive magazine.
Telos – in other words, the target, the goal, the destination, the end. A Greek word, rich in both philosophical and theological tradition. A title summed up in the action of the throwing of an arrow. The source is identified, the objective too.
Telos is the journal of Domuni University. An international journal of theology, philosophy, history and social sciences, freely accessible and published on the internet, with the aim of stimulating thinking and contributing to the dialogue of thought.
Its structure is in keeping with the tradition of the Order of Preachers, that of 'disputatio', understood not as vain controversy, but as a meeting place for different points of view on the same theme.
Domuni University inherits two precious gifts from the Dominican tradition: the Faith and the intellectual life. By sharing the wealth of its educational and research networks, we desire to share these gifts with the widest possible audience of readers.
We have a wonderful tradition and a vast collection of documents but we do not wish to be simply heirs or even broadcasters. We want to think, communicate, and reflect together: theologians and philosophers, Christians of today and tomorrow.
We are on five continents. Our languages and situations are often very different, but the diversity converges with the internet and specifically through this journal of scientific level.
In each edition a single theme is addressed, but by different authors from different linguistic and cultural areas. This naturally opens up bibliographies in English, Iatlian, Arabic, French and Spanish.
We hope not only to build bridges, establish connections and create openings but primarily to mutually enrich individual reflections.

at the centre of the relationship
The following statement may seem paradoxical. Distance - physical, intellectual, moral – allows for the creation of links. In fact, it is often absence that invites human beings to invent solutions for bringing people together and thus to demonstrate innovation. Generally, innovation is often analyzed in the stiff terms of technology. In the field of education, for example, we speak of “new information and communication technologies” (NICT). These are all the technologies that make it possible to process digital information and transmit it. By combining computing and telecommunications, these new technologies were much further developed with the generalization of broadband internet at the end of the 1990s. It was precisely at this time that Domuni Universitas was created, with the aim of responding to the intellectual training needs of the most isolated communities and of making available to a wide public the Dominican traditions of thought to which it would otherwise have difficulty in gaining access.
