The Philosophical Journal of Conflict and Violence (PJCV) is devoted to fostering discussion at the interface of philosophy, psychiatry, psychology, anthropology and political theory. The journal welcomes original articles providing philosophical insights about topics such as conflict, war, crime, and aggression. The PJCV encompasses contributions from the history of philosophy to more interdisciplinary studies. Specifically, the main ambition of the journal is to form a database on the conceptual, metaphysical, ethical and epistemological issues related to past and contemporary phenomena of violence.

The PJCV is double blind peer reviewed and published bi-annually in May and December. In order to avoid thematic fuzziness, each issue will begin with a focus section featuring contributions addressing a specific topic. The subjects are announced in advance in each issue’s call for papers. Besides, the open section of the journal provides a place for general contributions on conflict and violence. The editors encourage critical discussions involving a wide range of disciplines. The requirements are clarity of expression and rigorous argumentation.
