Studies in the History of Ethics has announced calls for papers for two future symposia. Details follow.
Ethics and Emotions in the History of Philosophy
Philosophers ‘rediscovered’ the ethical significance of the emotions in
the latter part of the twentieth century. Yet moral philosophers have
taken the emotions as a central object of study since ancient times.
This symposium will publish papers that illuminate the place that
emotions have played in the history of moral philosophy. Papers on all
eras and figures in the history of philosophy are welcome.
Submission deadline: July 10, 2008
Ethics in the American Philosophical Tradition
It has now been four centuries since Europeans began to establish
permanent settlements in the Americas, bringing with them their
philosophical and ethical traditions. In the 400 years that have
passed, has a distinctly American tradition in philosophical ethics
emerged? If so, what are its defining features or concerns, and how
does it relate to European ethical traditions? This symposium will
publish papers on all aspects of the American philosophical tradition.
Submission deadline: December 15, 2008
