Posted: 01.11.2022

Special issue theme (01/2023): «Philosophy of V.E. Sezeman».

In 2023 will be 60 years since V.E. Sezeman’s death, so our special issue will be dedicated to this anniversary date. We invite you to publish scientific articles for this issue devoted to various aspects of the work of this prominent and authentic author. V.E. Sezeman may be considered as one of the key thinkers, representing the so-called ontological turn in the philosophy of XX century. Most of Sesemann's works are devoted to the topics of the theory of cognition and aesthetics, and his thought was notably precise and systematic. The whole edifice of his philosophy, including his ontology, ethics, aesthetics, philosophy of religion and culture, is built upon the originally interpreted theory of knowledge.

Articles, written in English, Russian and German (up to 40,000 characters) are accepted until November 1, 2022, the issue will be published in February 2023.


Special issue theme (02/2023): «Muslim Philosophy: Challenges of the Time».

We invite you to publish scientific articles for this thematic issue devoted to the analysis of the uniqueness of classical Arab-Muslim and modern Muslim philosophy. The philosophy of the Middle East throughout history has been striking in its richness and diversity. The specificity of the research of the philosophical thought of the Muslim East is connected with the study of the periods of origin, development and decline of classical Arab-Muslim philosophy during the VIII–XV centuries, as well as with the nature of the development of new directions of the XVI–XXI centuries, addressed to the issues of modernity, such as scientific and technological development, the search for ways to preserve authenticity and Islamic identity in the conditions of renewal and modernization

The issue’s coeditors-in-chief are professor Mehdi Sanai (Tehran University) and researcher, honoured scientist of Russian Federation M.T. Stepanyants (Institute of Philosophy of the Russian Academy of Sciences).

Articles, written in English, Russian and German (up to 40,000 characters) are accepted until February 1, 2023, the issue will be published in May 2023.


Special issue theme (03/2023): «Kant’s “Critique of Pure Reason” and Ways of Its Reading by Philosophers».

On the eve of the 300th anniversary of Immanuel Kant, which will be celebrated in 2024, we invite you to publish scientific articles for the issue on the history of reception of Kant’s theoretical philosophy. The “Critique of Pure Reason” has had such a huge impact on the development of subsequent philosophy that the modern theory of knowledge can, to a large extent, be seen as a discussion with this, hitherto not fully understood, work. How eminent philosophers read and understood Kant is the subject of analysis in the planned issue. You are welcome to submit papers on how philosophers such as Fichte, Schelling, Hegel, Solovyov, Cohen, Cassirer, Lossky, Heidegger, McDowell, Sellars, and others interpreted the first “Critique”.

The issue’s editor-in-chief is one of the specialists in Kant’s philosophy, extra-ordinary professor at the University of Marburg (Germany) Maja Soboleva.

Articles, written in English, Russian and German (up to 40,000 characters) are accepted until May 1, 2023, the issue will be published in August-September 2023.


Special issue theme (04/2023): «Philosophy and Neurosciences».

We invite you to submit your papers covering the issues of possible interaction of philosophy and experimental research in the field of neurosciences. The emergence of such new directions as "neuroethics", "neurophenomenology", "neuroeconomics", "neurophilosophy" and even "neurotheology" not only reveals a popular trend, but also clearly demonstrates that the contemporary studies of the human brain are closely intertwined with philosophical questions about human nature: from human abilities, motivations, desires and will —to the understanding of freedom and its boundaries; at the same time, the former ways of conceptualizing the subjectivity are put into question.

In this issue we are inviting authors to send the papers dedicated to the following topics:

  • methodological and conceptual aspects of modeling of neuroexperiments;
  • the search for an adequate theoretical language to describe neuroprocesses and their correlates in experience;
  • difficulties in correlating quantitative and qualitative characteristics of experience;
  • the influence of neuroscience on current trends in the field of practical philosophy, primarily in the field of social philosophy, political philosophy and ethics.

The issue’s editors-in-chief are Georg Northoff (University of Ottawa) and Vadim Alexandrovich Chaly, (Immanuel Kant Baltic Federal University).

Articles, written in English, Russian and German (up to 40,000 characters), are accepted until June 15, 2023, the issue will be published in November 2023.
