Call for Papers: Philosophy’s Practical Turn
The Yale Journal of Law & the Humanities at Yale Law School invites proposals for a special symposium, “Philosophy’s Practical Turn” (spring 2017). Papers should be submitted by Dec. 31, 2016.
The journal seeks submissions that employ methods of philosophy (broadly construed) to investigate practical legal issues. We hope to publish articles representative of an array of philosophical traditions and contemporary issues. The special section aims to exemplify how philosophical approaches and insights provide distinctive and significant contributions to practical legal debates. Example topics include:
Bioethics, biolaw, and technology
Feminist philosophy of law
Law and philosophy of race, gender, sexuality
Mass incarceration and prisons
Neuroscience, law, and philosophy
Philosophical analyses of legal evidence or standards of proof
Philosophy of disability and the law
Practical just war theory and philosophy of war
Topics in practical ethics (e.g. abortion, capital punishment) with a legal-philosophical angle.
Submit papers prepared for anonymous review by December 31, 2016.
