Environmental Philosophy


Environmental Philosophy strives to provide a forum that is accessible to all those working in this broad field, while recognizing the interdisciplinary nature of this conversation. We invite papers in the following general categories:

  • Environmental Philosophy
  • Humanities and Environmental Policy Development
  • Environmental Ethics and Practice
  • Environmental Aesthetics and Literature
  • Environmental Theology
  • Ecophenomenology
  • Architecture, Place, and Dwelling
  • Culture and Communities
  • Philosophy of Science and Technology
  • Environmental Justice and Political Ecology
  • Analytic and Continental Approaches
  • Non-western and indigenous perspectives
  • Comparative environmental philosophy

The journal also invites feminist submissions within any of these areas.

The journal publishes feature articles (typically 6000-7000 words, although we have no fixed length requirements for submissions); discussion papers (shorter essays); and book reviews.
