CFP: Symphilosophie 2 (2020): “The Women Writers of Philosophical Romanticism”

We are glad to inform you that a call for papers for the issue of Symphilosophie 2 (2020) is now open. The issue is titled The Women Writers of Philosophical Romanticism.

The deadline for the submission is: 31 May 2020.


The main focus of this second issue is the thought of the women thinkers and writers of philosophical romanticism, among others: Karoline von Günderrode, Caroline Schlegel, Dorothea Veit, Sophie Mereau, Germaine de Staël, Bettina von Arnim. Possible topics to be addressed include: theories of the sexes, freedom, gender, marriage, property, relations between women and men in society, the state etc., and the relation of these female thinkers to their male peers in philosophical romanticism, and vice versa. These topics should be philosophically treated. This could be done from the perspectives of metaphysics, politics, right (law), ethics, aesthetics, religion, anthropology, or other philosophers and traditions, and/or in relation to modern 21st century issues, debates, and so on.

Apart from a section on the main topic, SYMPHILOSOPHIE also has a further section containing miscellaneous essays. Original research articles and reviews on other topics of philosophical romanticism will therefore also be considered for this second issue.

SYMPHILOSOPHIE especially welcomes scholarly research that returns to the original textual sources, while critically taking into account the secondary literature.

The submission deadline is: 31 May 2020.

SYMPHILOSOPHIE accepts submissions in the English, French, German and Italian languages.

Research and review articles should be no longer than 12,000 words, including footnotes and bibliography. Book reviews should not exceed 2,000 words.
