The first letters of the alphabet were created in the oldest city, Byblos. A Turning point that caused the erosion of the Greek alphabet and other sematic alphabets. Thus, the works of philosophy, history and literature were made possible. Inspired by this originality, the Letters from Byblos are a gateway for introducing human and social sciences in a simplistic approach with an academic credibility.
Initiated in 2003 by the director of the International Center for Human Sciences, UNESCO, Byblos, and published by this latter, Professor Theodor Hanf, the Letters from Byblos is a series of interdisciplinary occasional papers. The journal consists of academic papers, opinions, conference reports and proceedings that tackle a wide range of topics and written by national and international scholars, academicians, researchers, and students.
Other than human sciences, the Letters from Byblos encompasses a wide range of fields to engage in, such as conflict resolution, International Relations and Cultural Studies that has as main objective to deepen the knowledge of the reader. From general topics to more specific topics, Letters from Byblos successfully withdraws original topics, and the first issue begins in 2003 with introducing the basic theories of peace and its implementation in the international sphere.
