    Topoi Special Issue Adversariality in Argument

    Guest Editors:
    John Casey (Northeastern Illinois University)

    and

    Katharina Stevens (University of Lethbridge)


    Deadline for Submission: 15 May 2020

     

     While worries about adversariality in argument date back to Plato, more recent concerns about adversariality can be found in Janice Moulton’s (1983) identification of adversarial argument as a dominant paradigm in philosophy. Since the 80’s, there has been a growing body of work on argumentation, deliberation, and disagreement that confronts the dangers, limitations, and advantages of adversarial argumentation spanning various areas of research, such as argumentation theory, feminist theory, critical thinking research, deliberative democracy, and the cognitive science of reasoning. Contributions have produced a multitude of conceptions of adversariality, and strong arguments both for and against the importance of different forms of adversariality in argument. The concern with the role of adversariality has led to the development of cooperative theories of argumentation in critical thinking research. It has motivated ideas about how adversariality could be reduced or used for its positive effects as well as arguments about the moral obligations arguers have towards their interlocutors in argumentation theory. It stands in the center of feminist criticisms of contemporary argumentative practices. It has sparked debates about the design of deliberative publics in research on deliberative democracy. And it plays an important role in the argumentative theory of reasoning in cognitive science.

    The renewed interest in adversariality is important and timely. In an increasingly polarized world and faced with a public debate that is often hostile and unproductive, it is necessary to develop a robust theory of adversariality and its place in argument. Yet, authors in the debate often seem to be lacking a common understanding of what adversariality means, or in what sense it is or is not important/essential/productive. This special issue aims to bring different perspectives on adversariality in argument together and thereby both invigorate and focus an already lively debate. We therefore invite contributions that engage with adversariality in argument from any area of philosophy in the hope for a diverse and informative issue.

    Possible topics include, but are not limited to: Kinds of Adversariality; Is Adversariality Essential to Argument?; The Psychology of Argumentative Adversariality; Adversariality and the Cognitive Science of Reasoning; Adversariality in Political Deliberation; Adversariality in Deliberation Design, Argument-As-War Metaphor; Can Cooperative Argument Replace the Dominant Adversarial Model?; Argumentative Adversariality and Feminist Theory; Adversariality and Justice in Argument; Adversariality and Belief; History of the Problem of Adversariality; Adversariality Across Theories of Argumentation (Informal Logic, Pragma-Dialectics, Rhetoric, etc.); Adversariality and Disagreement; Adversariality and Polarization; Adversariality and Epistemology; Adversariality and Pedagogy; Critical Thinking and Adversarial Argumentation; The Ethics of Adversariality.

    Invited contributors: Scott Aikin (Vanderbilt University), Catherine Hundleby (University of Windsor) and Moira Howes (Trent University), Andrew Aberdein (Florida Institute of Technology), Sharon Bailin and Mark Battersby (Simon Fraser University)

    Instructions for Submission: All papers will be double-blind peer-reviewed. Submission is organized through TOPOI’s online editorial manager:https://www.editorialmanager.com/topo/default.aspx

    Log in, click on “submit new manuscript” and select “Adversariality in argument” from the menu “article type”.

    Please upload: 1) a manuscript prepared for double-blind peer-review and 2) a title page containing the title of the paper, name, affiliation and contact details of the author, word-count, abstract and key-words.

    Papers should not exceed 8000 words (excluding notes).

    The CJMA welcomes proposals on the theme of "Maritain Engaging Contemporary Philosophy". see more

    *CALL FOR PAPERS*

    Canadian Jacques Maritain Association

    Annual Symposium

    Friday, November 1 and Saturday, Nov 2, 2019

    Ottawa, Ontario, Canada

     

    Theme: Maritain Engaging Contemporary Philosophy

     

    2019 marks the 40th anniversary of the founding of The Canadian Jacques Maritain Association. In 1979, a small group of philosophers, led by Jean Louis Allard, and including Léon Charette, Fr. Lawrence Dewan, Leslie Armour, and Fr Jacques Croteau, established the Association in order to keep alive the kinds of questions and issues discussed in Maritain’s work. Maritain had two dominant interests. One was the idea of a perennial philosophy. Maritain held that there was a continuity in philosophy – that important insights of the past could be retained without preventing philosophers from pursuing new ideas – and he himself sought to engage the philosophies of his time by drawing on this perennial philosophy that he saw represented in Thomas Aquinas.

    To acknowledge and celebrate Maritain’s work this year, the CJMA will focus its annual symposium on the discussion of how Maritain’s philosophy, and the idea of a perennial philosophy in general, can engage issues and philosophies of the present time.

    We invite papers/proposals, in English or French, relating to the conference theme. Selected papers will be published in Études maritainiennes-Maritain Studies. Papers outside the conference theme will also be considered.

    Those who wish to present a paper should send a one-page abstract or proposal to:

    Dr William Sweet

    c/o Department of Philosophy, St Francis Xavier University, Antigonish, NS, B2G 2W5  Canada

    wsweet@stfx.ca

    Deadline for submission of proposals: August 30, 2019

    Papers should not exceed 30 minutes reading time.

    Culture and Dialogue is an international peer reviewed print and electronic journal of cross-cultural philosophy and humanities. The Journal provides a forum for researchers from philosophy as well as other disciplines who study cultural formations dialogically, through comparative analysis, or within the tradition of hermeneutics. For each issue, Culture and Dialogue  seeks to bring manuscripts together with a common denominator.

    The next 2019 issue (Volume 7, Number 2) will focus on the theme of 

    Culture, War and Sovereignty:

    “Culture, War and Sovereignty” can encompass a great many specifically philosophical themes and issues, and some ideas involving dialogical relationships include:

    • Comparative philosophy of conflict resolution and reconciliation, which may analyse one or more particular non-Western perspectives and how they can engage the relevant fields of Western philosophy.

    • Philosophical reflection on the range of approaches to war and sovereignty (analytic, interpretive, Western, Eastern etc.)
    • Inquiry into the cultural dimension of conflicts.
    • The role and significance of dialogue in conflict resolution and reconciliation.
    • The nature of and justification for sovereignty claims across cultures.
    • The essence of war and the question of sovereignty from interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary perspectives.

    We welcome essays that address any of these issues from different cultural perspectives or philosophical traditions. 

    Submissions to:          admin@culture-dialogue.net

    *CALL FOR PAPERS*

    for a topical issue of Open Theology

    PHENOMENOLOGY IN DIALOGUE: RELIGIOUS EXPERIENCE, VISUALITY, AND THE LIFEWORLD

    (PHENOMENOLOGY OF RELIGIOUS EXPERIENCE III)

    (second call)

     

    Edited by:

    Martin Nitsche, Institute of Philosophy, Czech Academy of Sciences (Prague)

    Olga Louchakova-Schwartz, Graduate Theological Union (Berkeley) and the Society for the Phenomenology of Religious Experience

     

     DESCRIPTION

     “Open Theology” (http://www.degruyter.com/view/j/opth) invites submissions for the topical issue “Phenomenology in Dialogue: Religious Experience, Visuality,  and the Lifeworld”, prepared in collaboration with the Society for the  Phenomenology of Religious Experience (www.sophere.org<http://www.sophere.org/>).

     We invite submission of papers dedicated to the phenomenologically determined themes of imagination, image-consciousness, appearance and the non-apparent, phenomenological ontology, and genetic phenomenology, with regard to religious experience. We further invite innovative philosophical and theological reflections on image, imagination, and creativity in religious experiencing, as well as reflections on a reverse problem of how religious experience contributes to the above mentioned faculties examined in the psychological horizon. This topic can be further narrowed down to research of phenomenological visuality, or broadened by thematization of critical issues arising from research into religious experience, such as, but not limited to, first-person authority and the relationship between  phenomenological and natural scientific horizons of inquiry: What are the spheres, regions, and horizons by which we can understand religious experience? How do traditional topics of phenomenological philosophy, such as the ego, subjectivity, embodiment, or intersubjectivity, relate to the study of visuality in religious experience? We invite these and other questions to be treated not only in the light of classical phenomenological scholarship, but also within other interpretive and critical approaches; we also welcome contributions from perspectives of theological phenomenology such as those connected with the work of Schleiermacher or Troeltsch, French phenomenology, and the Phenomenology of Life. Papers discussing the manifestations of visuality in various religious lifeworlds are also invited: does religious visuality manifest across various traditions and practices? The issue is open both to theoretical papers and papers with applied practical orientation, as along as the authors use phenomenological reflection in the treatment of their findings.

     Authors publishing their articles in the topical issue will benefit from:

     - transparent, comprehensive and fast peer review,

     – efficient route to fast-track publication and full advantage of De Gruyter Open’s e-technology

     – free language assistance for authors from non-English speaking regions,

     – complementary membership in the Society for Phenomenology of Religious Experience.

     

    Publication costs should be covered by so called Article Processing Charges (APC), paid by authors, their affiliated institutions, funders or sponsors. To view funding opportunities to cover APC please visit https://www.degruyter.com/page/1097 .
