CFP: A symposium on the book “Setting Health-Care Priorities” by Torborn Tannsjo

Submission deadline: January 31, 2020

Topic areas


The Editorial Board of Diametros invites commentaries on the recent work “Setting Health-Care Prorities” by Torbjörn Tännsjö. All those interested in obtaining a copy of Tännsjö’s book for a review, together with a précis, are asked to send a request via e-mail to the following address: [email protected].

We believe that a confrontation of global perspectives with those elaborated by Tännsjö might be of particular interest and importance for the debate on distributive justice in the context of healthcare. The papers may be addressed to different issues, from metaethical ones, through issues associated with general normative theories of justice, and ending with papers addressing particular dilemmas concerning the distribution of healthcare resources in different fields of healthcare. Of special importance is also the discussion of ethical theories such as egalitarianism, prioritarianism, utilitarianism and sufficientarianism. The deadline for submission is the 31st January 2020. Manuscripts should not exceed 40,000 characters and should be prepared in accordance with our guidelines, which may be found here:

We are proud to mention that Diametros is the best general philosophy journal in Poland (according to SJR rank), and is also indexed by Web of Science. We publish all articles without charge in open access form.
