CFP: The Monist
Submission deadline: January 31, 2016
Franz Brentano is familiar to analytic philosophers primarily for his reintroduction of the notion of intentionality into modern philosophy. But Brentano was a systematic thinker who made original contributions also in other areas of the philosophy of mind, as well as in metaphysics, metaethics, and epistemology. This issue of The Monist, to be published on the centennial of Brentano’s death, will focus on Brentano’s relevance to contemporary debates throughout philosophy. Contributions are invited addressing questions such as: Can Brentano’s mereology or reism contribute to current metaphysical debates? Can his theory of intrinsic value inform modern metaethics? Can his particular brand of foundationalism contribute to current discussions of epistemic justification?
