50TH Anniversary of Herbert A. Simon’s Work

XXVII volume of

Praxiology: The International Annual of Practical Philosophy and Methodology

Submission Deadline: March 1st, 2018

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the first edition of Herbert A. Simon’s The Sciences of the Artificial (1969), Praiology:The International Annual of Practical Philosophy and Methodology, published by Routledge (Taylor & Francis Group), intends to edit a commemorating collection of essays. To this end, we are currently seeking for a guest editor (or editors) who will take responsibility for this much-needed volume.

The work of Simon, a Nobel-winning author, can be considered as formative and ground-breaking for many research fields–from economics through cognitive and information science to philosophy. The 50th anniversary of the first edition of The Sciences of the Artificial creates a great opportunity to recapitulate main Simon’s ideas and estimate their current significance and prospects for future study. The volume may address the very idea of “the science of the artificial” introduced in the 1969 book as well its connections with such key questions as ‘bounded rationality’ or ‘satisficing’ which are known from Simon’s earlier works (1947, 1957).

Expressions of interest from researchers working in the areas of management science, economics, psychology, decision theory, cognitive science, philosophy of mind, philosophy of action and methodology are welcomed.

The collection will be published in 2019 or early 2020 as the 27th volume of the series.

Enquiries and expressions of interest should be sent to Piotr Tomasz Makowski (the editor-in-chief of the annual): or

We hope to make our decision about the editorship in March 2018. More details about the call: see the link.
