Philosophical News is the official publication of the European Society for Moral Philosophy. It is a semi-annual journal of philosophy born from the collaboration of a number of international scholars as well as an intense editorial effort. The aim of our journal is to promote research and reflection with special regard to the contemporary debate in all its different cultural manifestations.
Over the years many scholars collaborated to this publication, enriching research in the philosophical panorama. Grateful for all their collaboration, we have decided to continue developing the project by anchoring it within the research section of the newly founded European Society for Moral Philosophy. Moral philosophy was, after all, always central to the review’s focus; and we will continue to maintain the broad spectrum of perspectives represented in the review thus far. In this vein, we are happy to have the collaboration, next to the Scientific Committee, also of non-European Scholars.
Our editorial office therefore especially welcomes contributions pertaining to current debates, both of theorical and historical nature. The attention on current developments is in fact the distinctive feature of this editorial project. We decided to privilege major themes, developing each issue in a monographic form: only from the unity that belongs to thought in its origin, thought that is rooted in the grounds of experience and aware of its provenance, is it possible to move forward, to progress, to bear fruit with that calm that is then absolved and transformed by the ‘new’. Likewise, the harmony that occasionally transpires from the pages of classics appears as a potential cornerstone for a new, enriched study: As a farmer ploughs the earth for the harvest that ad-est, the philosopher ploughs the visible for the invisible that shines through it. He cuts through the visible, digging furrows that are not ordered according to the principles of geometry but according to the invisible Unum that integrates his thoughts and his actions, which are both philo-sophical (Stanislaw Grygiel).
