Call for Papers

Phenomenology and Mind invites submissions for a special issue dedicated to “New Trends in Philosophy”. The issue will gather the works from young philosophers all around the world in order to draw a picture of the directions in which philosophy is heading. The CfP is especially directed to PhD students, post-doctoral fellows, and young researchers. The main purpose of this special issue is to provide a critical overview of some of the most interesting topics and methodologies from the current philosophical debate. The issue will present state-of-the-art research in theoretical and experimental philosophy, with a particular focus on:

(1)  Philosophy of Language and Linguistics
(2)  Logic, Epistemology, and Philosophy of Science
(3)  Phenomenology and Social Ontology
(4)  Philosophy of Mind and Cognition
(5)  Ethics, Metaethics, and Political Theory.
In line with the interdisciplinary spirit of the Journal, possible areas of inquiry include (but are by no means limited to):

(1)  Semantics and Pragmatics, Context Dependence, Speech Acts, Disagreement;
(2)  Logical Pluralism, Theories of Truth and Non-Classical Logics, Grounding and Explanation;
(3)  Fact/Value Dichotomy, Personhood and Personality, Intentionality, Collective Agency, Intersubjectivity;
(4)  Extended Mind and Extended Cognition, Empathy and Social Cognition, Neurophenomenology;
(5)  Social Injustice and Implicit Bias, Value Theory, Ethics and Information Technology, Ethics of Clinical Research.
Phenomenology and Mind is the Journal of the Faculty of Philosophy of San Raffaele University (Milan). It was founded in 2011 and since then has hosted works of outstanding philosophers such as Lynne Baker, Thomas Fuchs, Anna Elisabetta Galeotti, Shaun Gallagher, Margaret Gilbert, Jürgen Habermas, Edward Harcourt, Robin Jeshion, Dieter Lohmar, Michael Pauen, John Searle, Nadia Urbinati, and many others. The journal is anonymously peer-reviewed and open-access. We are committed to publishing papers of high academic quality and making them accessible to a wide audience. Submissions from underrepresented groups in philosophy are particularly encouraged.
