CFP 1: Philosophy of Play

Reason Papers is soliciting contributions for a Spring 2016 symposium on normative issues in play. We invite submissions that explore the nature of play; its developmental importance; and its role in human lives, values, and societies. We are also interested in explorations of the relationship between play and other human activities (such as other recreational activities, education, or work), structured vs. unstructured play, and children’s play vs. adult play.  Submissions are due by February 1, 2016.

CFP: “Global Justice: Radical Perspectives” (Special Issue of Global Justice: Theory, Practice, Rhetoric)

CFP: “Global Justice: Radical Perspectives”

 Special Issue of Global Justice: Theory, Practice, Rhetoric

Edited by Maeve McKeown (Frankfurt) and Alasia Nuti (Cambridge)

The Global Justice debate is, for the most part, a liberal debate. For four decades, theorists have pondered over the exact scope of liberal distributive justice and the precise content of our duties. This special issue aims to take a step back and ask whether the liberal framework is the best one to address the question of injustice at the global level to begin with. In particular, it aims to analyse whether the liberal paradigm lacks the conceptual tools fully to understand, critique and remedy global injustices.

“Global Justice: Theory Practice Rhetoric” has recently received a generous grant by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft to upgrade its structure and web appearance.

But today we would like to introduce you to our brand new website (including a new electronic submission system):

Law, whether understood as an institutional organization of life in common or as a rational discourse about the conditions that allow that order, constitutes a viewing point from which we can observe any aspect of society. Similarly, starting from virtually any social event it is possible to draw a line that leads, eventually, towards the legal. The deep interrelation between law and other dimensions of social life dictates, therefore, that the study of the law be conducted from a multidisciplinary perspective. Furthermore, the importance of what is at stake in the relationship between the legal and its social environment requires that this study be undertaken from a critical perspective.
