Radical Philosophy Review


SPECIAL ISSUE of the Radical Philosophy Review:

The Radical Tradition, Politics, and Climate Change

The Radical Philosophy Review invites article submissions (of no more than 10,000 words) for a special edition on the theme “The Radical Tradition, Politics, and Climate Change.” We are particularly interested in papers addressing from a radical perspective questions like the following: What is politically necessary to prevent at this juncture disastrous climate change? Is the project feasible, how does it relate to struggles of climate justice, and how can the Left contribute to its realization? Why has effective carbon mitigation thus far been unsuccessful and what may happen politically if it continues to fall short? How should the Left respond to disaster capitalism, militarized adaption to climate change, and the like?

Guidelines for Submissions

Manuscripts (of no more than 10,000 words) should be sent as e-mail attachments (preferably in MS Word) to the editors of the special issue. Please attach two copies, one of which is prepared for blind refereeing with all direct or indirect references to the author removed. Include an abstract of no more than 100 words, as well as a short author bio of no more than 60 words. Citation style should follow the Chicago Manual of Style with short-title citations in the footnotes and a list of references at the end of the article.

Submissions are due November 1, 2019. Early submissions are welcome. Accepted papers may be posted in final format on Online First by the Philosophy Documentation Center. We especially welcome submissions representing radical perspectives from under-represented and/or marginalized groups.

Editors of the Special Issue:

  • Harry van der Linden, Editor of the Radical Philosophy Review. Professor Emeritus of Philosophy, Butler University. E-mail: [email protected]
  • Reed M. Kurtz, Guest Editor. PhD candidate in Political Science, Ohio State University. E-mail: [email protected]

Published biannually since 1998, the Radical Philosophy Review provides an interdisciplinary, peer-reviewed forum for activist scholars, community activists, and artists to explore concepts central to the humanistic transformation of society. It features original articles, special discussions, and reviews that will be of interest to those who share the view that society should be built on cooperation rather than competition, and that social decision-making should be governed by democratic procedures. The journal is sponsored by the Radical Philosophy Association and published by the Philosophy Documentation Center.
