CFP: Southwest Philosophy Review Volume 37: Issue 1

Submission deadline: September 4, 2020


An association of scholars and philosophers founded in 1936, Southwestern Philosophical Society provides a forum for philosophical and scholarly research. While SWPS originally served philosophers in the American Southwest, it has been for many years a national and international society. While SWPS does follow trends and methods that prevail in the world of Anglo-American philosophy, the Society is proud of its pluralism and its tradition of openness where scholars of all major traditions find their views and philosophical styles taken seriously.

The 2020 meeting of the Southwestern Philosophical Society cannot be held and will be cancelled due to budget cuts and and travel restrictions. However, we will still publish conference length papers in volume 37, issue 1 of the journal.

Papers on any philosophical topic are welcome. There are mutiple benefits to submitting to the Southwest Philosophy Review:

1. All papers undergo blind peer review from two scholars; 

2. A select number of papers will receive a written commentary, published in Volume 37, issue 2; 

3. While the journal owns the copyrights to the journal-formatted article, the author retains copyright over the words. Thus, the author can potentially expand the conference-length article and publish it in another venue. 

Submit papers here:

All questions about submissions should be emailed to Paul Carron at
