CFP: Dialectic (York) - Dealine Extension

Dialectic: The Undergraduate Journal of the University of York

The deadline for the next issue - 'Pragmatism & Justification' - has been extended to the 31st of July. 

Papers will be accepted on any aspect of this theme. Though discussions of pragmatist theories of truth and justification are most obvious, discussions of pragmatist approaches to other areas of philosophy, for example in ethical or political thought, will be enthusiastically welcomed. The closer submissions are to this theme, the better chance they have of being publish. *The only qualification is that the papers must deal with pragmatism in the philosophical sense of the word; papers which deal with approaches to philosophical issues which could be termed 'pragmatic' in the ordinary sense of the term will, within reason, be treated as being off topic*

Articles are welcomed by both undergraduates and postgraduates. Submissions must be pitched for an undergraduate audience. Knowledge of the topic and philosophical terminology should never be assumed and should always be clearly explained. Though discussions of technical issues in these areas isn't discouraged, they will be penalised if they don't meet this criterion. 

Submissions should be around 1000 - 1500 words, fully referenced in the Harvard Style and should be submitted to by 23:59, July 31st. 

We look forward to reading your submissions
James Laing & Jack Walker
