CFP: Bloomsbury Ethics

Submission deadline: December 1, 2012

Topic areas


A series of books exploring key topics in contemporary ethics.

Bloomsbury Ethics (previously Continuum Ethics) is a series of books that will bridge the gap between new research work and undergraduate textbooks. They provide close examination of key concepts in contemporary moral philosophy.  Aimed largely at upper-level undergraduates and research students, they will also appeal to researchers in the field. Authors will be expected to combine philosophical sophistication with an accessible style that can engage the educated reader.

We are seeing the first wave in books in this series - 'Reasons' by Eric Wiland has just come out - with more on the way. We are now looking for more book proposals. 

Possible Topics:

  • Capabilities
  • Duty
  • Error Theory
  • Experimental Ethics
  • Expressivism
  • Freedom and Morality
  • Just War
  • Moral Knowledge
  • Moral Narrative and Personality
  • Moral Psychology and Character
  • Punishment
  • Relativism
  • Utility
