Philosophical Reflection and Technological Change
Annual theme issue of Human Affairs

Deadline for abstracts: 31 December, 2019

Human Affairs is an international journal for humanities and social affairs, with a special emphasis on philosophy, which was founded in 1990. It focuses on contemporary human affairs, with the goal to advance human self-understanding and communication. Beginning with issue 4 in October 2019, the journal publishes an annual issue dedicated exclusively to philosophy. It is edited at Keele University, UK, by James Tartaglia and Stephen Leach (Consciousness and the Great Philosophers (Routledge 2017), The Meaning of Life and the Great Philosophers (Routledge 2018)). Each issue focuses on a particular topic of contemporary philosophical interest and combines invited papers with an open Call for Papers.

Philosophical Reflection and Technological Change issue:

New technologies change how we live and seem set to do so at an accelerating pace. What role is there for philosophical reflection in this process? Are there insights within the history of philosophy concerning how we think about technology and technological change which could be usefully brought to bear? How is contemporary philosophy of technology affecting the process of technological change, or how should it be affecting it? We invite contributions addressing these and related questions, which may either seek to contribute to contemporary debates within the philosophy of technology, reflect in general upon these debates and their role within the process of technological change, or draw out insights from the history of philosophy about how we should think about technology and technological change. We invite extended abstracts of 1000 words (maximum – excluding bibliography, if you include one). Authors of the abstracts we select will be invited to submit a full paper (4000 words maximum, excluding bibliography). Papers will be subject to peer-review, and those selected will be published alongside invited papers.

Deadline for Abstracts: 31 December, 2019
Deadline for Full Papers: 31 May, 2020
Publication: December 2020
