MIH serves as a focal point and forum for scholarship in intellectual history and its related fields, from the period of 1650 to the present. Though its primary focus is on Europe and the United States, it also devotes attention to global intellectual and cultural exchanges. In so doing, MIH concerns itself chiefly with apprehending the contextual origins and receptions of texts in order to recover their historical meanings. But we understand 'texts' in the broadest sense, so as to encompass multiple forms of intellectual and cultural expression. These include, but are not limited to, political thought, philosophy, religion, literature, both the social sciences and the natural sciences, music, architecture and the visual arts.
