Call for papers

‘Hegel and 20th-Century French Philosophy’

The Hegel Bulletin will publish a special issue devoted to the topic of Hegel and 20th-century French Philosophy.

Stephen Houlgate and Alison Stone are confirmed contributors.

The range of themes of possible relevance to this special issue extends across metaphysics, social and political theory, ethics, history, religion and aesthetics. Accepted submissions will illuminate specific parts of both Hegel and 20th-century French Philosophy. We welcome equally historical papers that base their argument on careful textual analysis and reconstructive papers that frame their argument in the context of contemporary debates. Authors are encouraged to contact one of the guest editors in advance of submission if they are unsure of whether their papers are appropriate for the special issue.

All papers (7000 words to 10000 words) will be double-blind refereed.
