CFP: Philosophical Idealism as Ant-Racism

Submission deadline: December 30, 2020

Topic areas


Idealistic Studies provides a peer-reviewed forum for the discussion of themes and topics that relate to the tradition and legacy of philosophical Idealism. Established in 1971 as a vehicle for American Personalism and post-Kantian Idealism, the journal's purview now includes historically earlier expressions, as well as the inheritance of that past in the developments of late 19th to mid-20th century philosophy. The journal has also become a venue for a number of philosophical movements that share Idealism in their genealogies, including Phenomenology, Neo-Kantianism, Historicism, Hermeneutics, Life Philosophy, Existentialism, and Pragmatism. Published contributors include Lewis White Beck, Roderick Chisholm, Charles Hartshorne, Dieter Henrich, Allegra De Laurentiis, Nicholas Rescher, and Charlene Haddock Seigfried.

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of our journal and the 250th anniversary of G. W. F. Hegel's birthday, we are accepting submissions on the topic of Philosophical Idealism as Anti-Racism
