Call For Papers

Call for Papers: Vol. 8 (2020) – No 1-2 – Animal Ethics History: the Protagonists and the Different Approaches to our Relationships with the Other Sentient Beings

The seventies of the twentieth century represented a decade of turning point in our moral consideration of non-human sentient beings, giving rise to an area of practical ethics, animal ethics, which since then has known extensive developments and articulations. The next issues of “Relations” are dedicated to the protagonists of this story and to the various approaches that over the last fifty years have been used to find convincing answers about the moral status of non-human animals. Contributions concerning the reflection on animals by philosophers such as P. Singer, T. Regan, S. F. Sapontzis, M. Midgley, J. Rachels, D. DeGrazia, C. M. Korsgaard, M. Nussbaum, G. Francione, C. Diamond ecc. are welcome, as well as contributions on the different approaches that have characterized and still characterize animal ethics: utilitarianism, deontological approach, virtue ethics, feminist ethics, the capabilities approach ecc.

Relations. Beyond Anthropocentrism is a peer-refereed open access journal of trans-anthropocentric ethics and related inquires. The main aim of the journal is to create a professional interdisciplinary forum in Europe to discuss moral and scientific issues that concern the increasing need of going beyond narrow anthropocentric paradigms in all fields of knowledge. The journal accepts submissions on all topics which promote European research adopting a non-anthropocentric ethical perspective on both interspecific and intraspecific relationships between all life species – humans included – and between these and the abiotic environment.

We welcome papers, comments, debates, interviews, book and movie reviews, as well as presentations, reports, and other news concerning relevant activities and events. We envision inter- and trans-disciplinary contributions and dialogue from a wide variety of approaches: humanities (e.g. philosophy, literature, arts, law, and religious studies), life sciences (e.g. biology, ecology, ethology, medicine), and social sciences (e.g. economics, politics, anthropology, sociology, psychology). We especially encourage collaborative submissions from different disciplinary approaches, from both senior and junior scholars (including graduate students). All suitable submissions should address both academic and lay audiences as well as relevant stakeholders. Since the journal refers to an international readership of people from different disciplines, both inside and outside the academic community, contributors should keep in mind this heterogeneity of provenances and areas of expertise when writing.

The section «Comments, Debates & Interviews» includes scholarly comments as well as debates and interviews between two or more scholars. The section «Books & Movies Reviews» includes comments and reflections on important texts and movies. The section «News» includes reports and presentations of conferences and workshops, as well as information on activities, events, and other projects.
