CFP: Politics and Science: Danish Yearbook of Philosophy

Submission deadline: December 31, 2022

Topic areas


The relation between science and politics has always been intricate and highly debated. On the one hand, some argue that science and research ought to be politically neutral. On the other hand, philosophers like Hilary Putnam have famously claimed that such an ideal for science is neither desirable nor realistic. The Covid-19-pandemic as well as the emerging climate crisis has triggered increased attention to the political reliance of scientific claims and to the relation between political action and science in general. This special theme in the Danish Yearbook of Philosophy will take up issues related to the descriptive as well as the normative questions about the relation between politics and science from a philosophical point of view.

The theme of politics and science was also the overriding theme of the 2022 conference and annual meeting of The Danish Philosophical Society that was arranged by the Department of Philosophy and the History of Ideas at Aarhus University and took place the 4th and 5th of March, 2022.

Confirmed contributors and keynote speaker at the conference: Sabine Roeser (TU Delft).

Deadline for submissions is December 31st, 2022.

The journal publishes contributions in English, German and French, and within all areas of philosophy. Articles should normally not exceed 20 pages of 400 words, i.e. 8000 words. Articles exceeding this limit may be accepted, however, if it is considered that their length is appropriate to their topic, and if they are found to be of sufficiently high quality. Article manuscripts submitted to the journal must be refereed by a qualified international reviewer. Upon submission, please suggest three possibilities and provide links to their institutional homepages. If you have any question, please write to the guest editors:
