Call for papers

Both neuroscience-based research on body representation and philosophical research on the constitutive conditions onfirst-person thought (i.e. thought in-volving the first-person concept) seem to point in the same direction: there are crucial links to be unveiled between body, action and first-person thought. On the one hand, the substantial amount of neurophysiological data available and patient studies suggest that body representation plays a necessary role in the production of physical action. On the other hand, philosophical reflection on the constitutive conditionsonconceptual thought - and in particular, first-person thought - identifyaction, whether physical or mental action, as a constitutive element of first-person thought. However, how are body, action and first-person thought ultimately related? Is one's body, for instance, a key element for the elucidation of first-person thought via the role of body representation in action? This call for papers invites contributors working from one or several of these areas of specialisationto submit interdisciplinary work that explores the intriguing connections that exist between these central notions of philosophical theorising:

The Spanish Philosophy journal teorema is pleased to announce an essay competition for young scholars. The winner will receive 1500€, and the essay will be published and acknowledged as winner in the journal.

Topic: Knowledge-First Epistemology and
Decision Theory

According to a recent idea developed by the approach known as "knowledge-first episte-mology", the evidence available to a subject at a time t consists of the propositions the subject knows. Together with the view that the rationality of an action is a matter of the evidence available to the agent, the result is that rational action requires knowledge. Is this a defensible view of rational action? If it is not, what is the connection between rational action and belief? Does rational action require rational belief? Does it require less than that: is perhaps mere belief sufficient to rationalize action? More generally, what are the connections between justification, rationality and excusability of both actions and beliefs?

Applicants must be under 35 on the closing date of the competition.

Entries must be in English or Spanish, and not exceed 8000 words in length, notes and references included.

All entries will be deemed submissions to teorema, and all quality submissions will be considered for publication. Entries must not have been published before, or be under consideration by other journals.

All entries, prepared for blind review, will be submitted electronically both in doc and pdf format, and addressed to the Editor, indicating "teorema Essay Prize" in the subject heading.

Entries will be judged by a panel of reputed scholars appointed by teorema. Their decision will be final.

Address for submissions: teorema@uniovi.es
Closing date: 1st November, 2017
