The Philosopher’s Stone: First Call for Papers

The Philosopher’s Stone Launches!

It is a pleasure to announce the call for papers for the very first issue of The Philosopher’s Stone. This is a new e-journal in philosophy, with the intention that it become an informative, readable and enjoyable resource for teachers and students in philosophy along with the interested public. From the guide for contributors:

“The Philosopher’s Stone welcomes original, enjoyable, provocative and irenic contributions in any area of philosophy, but especially in metaphysics, philosophy of religion, epistemology, value theory, broadly construed (all branches of ethics, aesthetics and social and political philosophy), philosophy of mind and philosophy of law. Articles should be written at a level where they can be appreciated by undergraduate and graduate students alike (accepting that some technical explanation may be required), faculty wanting useful material to bring to their students’ attention, and the interested public. The general style of Think: Philosophy for Everyone is a good guide. It is expected that contributors will have at least a Masters degree in philosophy or a related discipline.”

And from the “About” page: “The purpose of this journal is therefore to publish articles that not only promote only academic discussion of philosophical issues, but which do so in a distinctive format, promoting the public understanding of those issues and of philosophy in general in a good humoured, engaging and enjoyable way.”
