    It is now widely recognized that early-modern or ‘Second’ Scholasticism constitutes the missing link between medieval and early-modern philosophy. This issue of ACPQ wishes to take a different perspective, and promote the study of second scholasticism for its inherent philosophical value and not necessarily by looking for anticipations of Descartes or Kant. The editors welcome papers on any issue under the following specifications: (1) the issue should be dedicated primarily to logic, metaphysics or the theory of knowledge; (2) we encourage the authors to look outside the present accepted ‘canon’ of second scholastic authors, such as Vitora, Suárez or Poinsot, as we wish to promote lesser known figures who were often giants in their own time; (3) we are open to both analytical reconstruction as well as to historical scholarship. Each article, including abstract and notes, should be under 12000 words (no longer than approx. 45 double-spaced, 12-point manuscript pages).

    Send submissions by email directly to the guest editors.
