Call for Papers
Pli, The Warwick Journal of Philosophy invites submissions for the next volume (21) on the topic of Novelty, Transformation and Change.
Attempts to explain the genesis of novelty require and engender reappraisals of our metaphysical or ontological assumptions. The sense of novelty and the possibility of experiencing it are in turn open to debate. Further, the relation of novelty to the concepts of change or transformation stands in need of analysis. Thought which critically engages with the world engenders a pressing interest in how change or transformation can be brought about. We are then faced with the question of how we can move beyond our current existence and relation to the world from within these conditions. If we are interested in radically changing our own existence then how do we navigate between the Scylla and Charybdis of losing the hope of real novelty and alienating the goal of change from human possibility? Can we convey the need for and goal of a transformation that would imply a break with our current terms of representation? Do accounts of the genesis of novelty offer the key to bring about deliberate change, or are they in tension with the concept of change? For the next edition of Pli we welcome papers that engage with or challenge these questions and the paradigms surrounding novelty, transformation and change.
The deadline has been extended to the 15th September, 2009.
Submissions, no longer than 8,000 words, should be sent by email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
