No. 20: CFP IS NOW OPEN 

Topic: Politics

Deadline: October 1st, 2020.

In the Nicomachean Ethics, Aristotle says that «even if the end [i.e., the “supreme good”] is the same for a single man and for a state, that of the state seems at all events something greater and more complete whether to attain or to preserve; though it is worth while to attain the end merely for one man, it is finer and more godlike to attain it for a nation or for city-states. These, then, are the ends at which our inquiry aims, since it is political science, in one sense of the term». (EN 1.3)
 
Accordingly, this volume of Philosophical News seeks to re-examine the question of the art of politics and the science of philosophy in a critical manner. In accordance with the aims of the European Society for Moral Philosophy, papers are requested on a variety of topics, including historical, dialectical, and practical approaches to the subject. Suitable topics may include:
 
Rediscovering the Common Good in an Individualistic Culture
The Common Good vs. the Common Utility
Liberalism and the pursuit of happiness
Post-liberalism
Church and State
