Etymology & Symbolism


The magazine's name derives from the Latin words "ars" and "sanus," meaning "art" and "health" or "sound," respectively, as well as "studio." In combining these words, Artesane creates a space that unites the power of art and knowledge to produce an intellectual and spiritual experience rarely found in contemporary media. 

The term "artesane" is a term of international circulation, appearing in many Latin languages, including Spanish, French, Italian, and Portuguese, as well as Romanian. This term is rooted in the Latin "ars," from which the Romanian word for "art" is derived. In Romanian, "artesane" is a masculine noun connoting "artisan." Therefore, an "artesan" is a person who practices traditional techniques to create objects with an aesthetic quality. "Studio" derives from the Italian "studio," which translates to "laboratory" or "atelier" and is used to connote a place of creation or conception for persons engaged in artistic, literary, or musical pursuits. 

Thus, "studio" translates as a "location wherein artistic or intellectual activity takes place". Interpreted as "the artisan's laboratory" or "the intellectual's atelier", "Artesane Studio" symbolizes innovation, authenticity, cultural unity, and diversity.


Future Plans

Over the course of recent years, our research has focused on the complex and multifaceted phenomena of scholasticism, medieval philosophy, mysticism, political theology, and medieval art. Our forthcoming research endeavors aim to expand our scope to investigate a broader range of interconnected topics that transcend disciplinary boundaries. 


We are particularly interested in examining the interdependencies between philosophy, science, literature, art, music, and theology, to analyze the reciprocal influences and interactions between these disciplines. Specifically, we propose to investigate the following areas:

  • The Intersection of Philosophy and Science: This endeavor seeks to integrate theoretical and empirical approaches to understand the scientific phenomenon, with an emphasis on the theoretical foundations and methodological implications of scientific inquiry.
  • The Role of Technology in Shaping Human Experience: This investigation examines the reciprocal relationships between education, technology, and culture, with a focus on how technological advancements shape and are shaped by societal norms and values.
  • The Impact of Globalization on Cultural Identity: This study investigates how globalization processes affect and are affected by cultural identities, with a particular emphasis on the tensions between homogenization and diversification that arise from globalization.
  • The Relationships between Art and Politics: This exploration examines how art reflects and influences politics and society, with a focus on how artistic expression is used to shape public opinion and inform policy-making.
  • The Ethics of Artificial Intelligence (AI): This inquiry examines the ethical implications of AI development and its potential impact on modern humanity, with a particular emphasis on the need for ethical frameworks that can guide the development of AI technologies.


To achieve our objectives, we will employ interdisciplinary approaches that draw on a range of disciplines, including analytic philosophy, logic, ontology, metaphysics, epistemology, hermeneutics, and phenomenology. Various theoretical frameworks, including the philosophy of science, bioethics, anthropology, psychology of religion, cultural theory, political studies of globalization and religions, ethics in AI governance, and AI regulation in art, politics, and religious studies inspire our research. Ultimately, our goal is to provide a platform for interdisciplinary inquiry and intellectual exchange that fosters a deeper understanding of the complex interrelationships between art, culture, and society.


Through this endeavor, we aim to inspire innovative research initiatives, stimulate critical thinking and debate, educate scholars and practitioners alike about the complexities of these interrelationships, and provide a forum for the exchange of ideas that can inform policy-making and shape future research directions.

Privind în adâncul sufletului lumii,
Un mănunchi împletit de amintiri apofatice
Veghează cu o tăcere solemnă călătoria noastră,
Asemenea unor santinele așezate sub cerul fulgerător,
Devenind simboluri ale nemărginitului.
