CfP: New Springer Book Series: “Philosophy and Poverty”

“Philosophy and Poverty”, a new fully peer-reviewed book series published by Springer. The first volume is scheduled to be published in 2018. The book series is edited by Henning Hahn, Gottfried Schweiger and Clemens Sedmak, whose work is supported by an international Advisory Board. It is the first book series to focus exclusively on philosophical research on poverty, which is an area of increasing interest and high social and political importance. The book series is not restricted to issues of ethics and justice which dominate the philosophical research on poverty, but is also open to questions related to the philosophy of science, epistemology or history of philosophy insofar as they relate to poverty.

“Philosophy and Poverty” covers projects that combine rigorous philosophical research with practical importance, as well as such projects that aim to clarify concepts, the history of ideas, methodological issues or questions of measurement.

The book series is open to monographs and carefully drafted collections. The editors and the Advisory Board look forward to receive proposals for new projects from both junior and established scholars.
