CFP: Special issue on Kantian studies in the Nordic countries

Submission deadline: March 31, 2019

Topic areas


There has been an enduring interest in Immanuel Kant’s (1724–1804) philosophy in the Nordic countries. Scholars from these countries have explored a wide range of topics from Kant’s metaphysics and aesthetics to moral and political philosophy. The first Swedish translations of Kant’s works appeared already during Kant’s lifetime, and the beginning of the current century has seen new translations of Kant’s works to Danish, Finnish, Norwegian and Swedish.

The purpose of this special issue is to present cutting edge new work on Kant in the Nordic countries. Contributions are welcomed by scholars based in Nordic academic institutions, working in any field related to Kant’s philosophy. Authors are invited to contribute original, unpublished articles of 6000–8000 words, accompanied with an abstract. The article should be written in English, but the abstract should be provided in English and in one of the languages of the Nordic region.

The deadline for the submissions is March 31, 2019. The submissions go through blind review and the authors will be notified of acceptance of their paper in 2019. The special issue will be published in the spring 2020. Please send your manuscript to the following e-mail address: (Please indicate in the subject line: Kant in the Nordic countries.)
