CFP: Stanford Center for Ethics in Society Inaugural Junior Scholars Workshop

The Center for Ethics in Society will host an inaugural Junior Scholars Workshop at Stanford University on June 7-9, 2018. The workshop will feature the work of early career scholars in political philosophy, political theory, and moral philosophy, and is open to graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and untenured junior faculty. This workshop seeks to highlight the work of emerging scholars, and to advance the Center’s mission of bringing ethical reflection to bear on pressing social problems.

For our inaugural workshop we are especially interested in scholarship in what might be called “interdisciplinary ethics.” Normative scholarship focused on issues like immigration, climate change, global poverty, and the governance of new technologies can benefit from engagement with the social sciences, law, and life sciences. We especially encourage submissions that bring relevant empirically-oriented scholarship to bear on normative questions and analysis. Yet we welcome submissions from political philosophers, political theorists, and moral philosophers that address any normative issue, whatever the methodological approach or topic. Papers will be evaluated by multiple readers and on the basis of quality alone. read more...

Call for Nominations: 2018 NASSP Book Award

Each year the North American Society for Social Philosophy (NASSP) honors the best book published in social philosophy during the previous year. The Book Award Committee invites you to nominate a book to compete for the award for 2017. (For the purposes of this award, a book’s eligibility is determined by the year of its copyright rather than by the year of its release.)

The Award will be conferred on a book published in 2017 that makes the most significant contribution to social philosophy. The field is to be construed broadly, to include social and political philosophy, philosophy of law, philosophy of social science, and social ethics. Excluded are anthologies, historical studies, and works on ethics that lack a distinctly social component and works on a social topic that lack a substantial philosophical component. read more...

New Book: Integration of Immigrants and the Theory of Recognition ‘Just Integration’

The manuscript titled Integration of Immigrants and the Theory of Recognition: ‘Just Integration’ (published by Palgrave Macmillan on October 2017) approaches the issue of immigrant integration as a democratic justice problem. Based on Honneth’s recognition theory, it introduces the concept of ‘Just Integration’, which challenges the capacity of the actual recognition order of the host society to include its immigrants as full members.  The study criticizes the current political obsession to restore the social cohesion of the host society in the face of immigration. It argues that this perception inhibits host societies from recognizing their immigrants as individuals who have authentic skills, qualifications and identities in addition to their ethnic, cultural and religious attachments. Finally, in the book, author applies the concept of ‘Just Integration’ to the real pathologies that immigrants/refugees suffer in Canada and Turkey, providing guidelines for progress towards better integration of immigrants within host societies and institutions. read more...
