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.

Manchester Workshops in Political Theory, 7-9 September 2016

Workfare will be discussed from various perspectives such as marxism, liberalism or communitarism and in connection to related issues such as the value of work and labor, justice within the welfare system, the wrongs of poverty and exploitation, or the place of the market in the distribution of benefits and burdens.
