This series aims at advancing philosophical reflection on the history, nature, and causes of violence, as well as on remedies and alternatives to violence. We welcome proposals for both edited collections and monographs that fit any of the following descriptions:

  • Investigations that bring the tools of philosophical analysis to bear on issues pertaining to warfare, terrorism, interpersonal violence, political violence, punishment, scapegoating, sacrifice combat sports, representations of violence in the arts, popular culture, and media, sexual violence, and other topics of contemporary relevance.
  • Studies of how past philosophers, including non-Western philosophers, have approached questions related to violence and conflict, how their thought can shed light on contemporary concerns, and how their political interventions may have contributed to conflict resolution and the deferral of violence, on the one hand, and to incitements to violence, on the other.
  • Normative inquiries that attempt to delineate circumstances under which violence may or may not be justified or, alternatively, argue for pacifism.
  • Applications of insights drawn from philosophy to initiatives for reducing violence and assuaging conflicts.
  • Conceptual analyses that attempt to define violence, distinguish its various manifestations, and understand its relationship to both human nature and culture/society.
  • Interdisciplinary approaches that employ insights from political theory, international relations, anthropology, sociology, theology, religious studies, psychology (social psychology, evolutionary psychology, psychoanalysis), and other fields to enhance our understanding of the dynamics of violent conflict.

This list is meant to be suggestive, not exhaustive. We welcome all proposals that fall within the wide ambit of the theme of philosophy and violence.
