Hegel and Pragmatism

Call for papers, Hegel Bulletin Special issue: Pragmatism

Pragmatism has historical and conceptual connections to Hegel's philosophy and the aim of this special issue is to explore aspects of this relation. We invite papers on neo-pragmatist interpretations of Hegel, on idealist themes in both classical pragmatist thought and the 'neo-pragmatism' of Richard Rorty and Robert Brandom and their 'new pragmatist' critics, and on aspects of idealist and pragmatist approaches to core philosophical concerns from epistemology to ethics.

All papers are double-blind refereed. * Full papers should be received by the 2nd December 2014. Please send as electronic submission to the guest editor Dr Neil Gascoigne.
