CFP: Essays in Philosophy volume on Philosophical Methodology

Journal: Essays in Philosophy
Topic: Philosophical Methodology
Volume 13, Number 1

Issue date: January 2012

Submission deadline: October 1, 2011

Editor: James McBain (Pittsburg State University)
While philosophers employ the philosophical method, rarely do they articulate exactly what that method is. What is it that philosophers are doing when they do philosophy? How is it that philosophers are to proceed in addressing and answering philosophical questions?

Essays in Philosophy
invites submissions engaged with such questions on philosophical method.

Topics for submissions may address issues such as (but are not limited to):
  • Are there methods particular (only) to philosophy?
  • Conceptual Analysis
  • Explication (Theoretical or Pragmatic)
  • Reflective Equilibrium as a Methodology for Philosophy
  • The Role of the A Priori and/or A Posteriori in the Philosophical Method
  • The Role of Intuitions in the Philosophical Method
  • The Impact of Experimental Philosophy on Philosophical Methodology
  • Is there one single Philosophical Method or are there many? What would be the ramifications if there were more than one philosophical method for attempting to solve philosophical problems?
  • Philosophical Methodology in the History of Philosophy
  • Do we need to justify the method(s) in philosophy?
  • What is the relationship between the methodology in philosophy and philosophical conclusions (or results)?
  • Or any such related question.
All submissions should be sent to the general editor via email: boersema@pacificu.edu
