Topic: The problem of goodness in moral philosophy.

This issue is a continuation of the previous issue, no. 13, which resulted from the research conducted during the ESMP1. We chose to go more deeply into the topic of the ESMP1 by dedicating another issue to the problem of goodness in moral philosophy. So, starting from the question “What is good?” authors are invited to develop a reflection, in light of the theme of the history of philosophy, or themes from the other four sections of the conference.

Extended deadline: September 1st, 2017.

Topic: Desire&Will.

We have decided to dedicate issue no. 15 to the topic “Desire&Will”. Desire – a term which in general designates a tendency, sensible or rational, to be well-disposed toward something in such a way as to possess it for oneself and enjoy it – is undoubtedly one of the most difficult forms of consciousness to decipher. In this issue we want to investigate the anthropological-transcendental and psychological dimensions of desire. Contributions are welcomed, therefore, which propose reflections upon any of the following themes: 1. theoretical aspects (what do we mean by desire and will, how they interact, problems, criticisms emerged, theories); 2. historical aspects (desire and/or will within the history of philosophy, new readings. n.b.: in this area we accept texts that propose new criticism, reflections, comparisons form authors, but not texts that present the theme only under a descriptive level, without a critical perspective or motivation of why it is important the study proposed); 3. moral-sociological aspects (the desire and the will in the flourishing of the subject; social expressions and implications); 4. juridical aspects (in regard to rights); 5. political aspects (if there is a moral protection in political decisions, government or administration); 6. economic aspects (subject effects on markets; decision-making in the business and the private sector).

Deadline: October 1st, 2017.
