Call for papers

Experimental Philosophy is a relatively recent movement that questions the supposedly traditional philosophical methodology. Traditional philosophers, according to experimentalists, use exclusively their own judgments to determine whether the consequences of the principles they defend, or attack, are intuitively correct, and they do so usually via mental experiments in which they try to gauge what, according to the principles in question, one would have to say in the conditions described in a hypothetical scenario. Experimental philosophers, on the other hand, advocate the collection of data through surveys that elicit the intuitive judgments of subjects in order to test the adequacy of theoretical principles or claims. teorema invites submissions on all aspects of experimental philosophy. We will consider both papers within the experimental philosophy movement as well as discussions of the significance of the experimental approach in philosophy.

teorema encourages submissions on these and related questions. Articles must be written in English and should not exceed 6,000 words. For the presentation of their articles, authors are requested to take into account the instructions available here. Submissions must be suitable for blind review. Both a DOC and a PDF document must be sent to the Editor of teorema by April 30, 2016. Notification of intent to submit, including both a title and a brief summary of the content, will be greatly appreciated, as it will assist with the coordination and planning of the special issue.

Guest Editor for this issue will be Profs. Genoveva Martí (ICREA-U. Barcelona) and José Martínez (University of Barcelona).

Contact details for queries and submissions:
Prof. Luis M. Valdés Villanueva
Editor of teorema
E-mail: teorema@uniovi.es

Deadline for submissions: April 30, 2016



teorema is pleased to announce that the winning entry for the 2015 teorema Essay Prize for Young Scholars on Free Will and Cognitive Science is:

Topic: Perceiving Other Minds

Access to other people's mental states has frequently been thought to be a matter of inference from behavioural data obtained through observation. But recently, an alternative view, traditionally associated with the phenomenological tradition in philosophy and with Wittgenstein's work, has spread and gained some currency within analytic philosophy - namely, the view that access to other people's mental states is a matter of perception alone. How plausible is this perceptual model of our access to other minds? In particular, is it suited to accommodate the whole complexity of the human mind, or only part of it? Furthermore, can it be extended to explain access to non-human minds, and how? Finally, is it compatible with a broadly naturalist approach to mental states and capacities?

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, 2016
