Kairos, Journal of Philosophy & Science: CFP for June 2024 issue on "Resistance" // Submission deadline: May 1st

After an unfortunate silence, Kairos, Journal of Philosophy & Science, sends out a renewed Call for Papers. For opening this new chapter of the journal, we choose to focus on the concept of “resistance”. We believe that this concept matches Kairos’ aim of dealing with philosophical topics of major concern in the contemporary scientific and social realms.

We understand the concept of resistance according to a broad meaning spectrum: from scientific to naturalistic uses, referring to the resilience and fitness of a body, to the description of sophisticated social and political attitudes.

We would like to open the pages of Kairos, Journal of Philosophy & Science for your reflections on the theoretical complexity of this concept of "resistance". Aware of the many names and nicknames that surround the concept of resistance − dissidence, contestation, protest, civil disobedience, insurrection, revolt, rebellion, rejection, and also resilience, adaptability, flexibility, reaction, opposition, reluctance, etc. − we invite contributions that aim at shedding light on the theoretical and practical levels of the concept of resistance, in its epistemological, political, ontological, aesthetical dimensions. What does it mean to resist today? What do we need to resist today?  What forms can resistance take today? What new names does resistance adopt today? And which old ones has it, or should it shed?
