CALL FOR PAPERS

Special Issue: Pragmatism and Sexuality

Pragmatism Today calls for papers about "Pragmatism and Sexuality."

Most people are curious about sexuality. While many could go to Freud's theories and how he exaggerated the role of sexuality in our lives, it is undeniable that sexuality significantly influences everyday life. Freud's scientific approach belongs to scientia sexualis, contrary to ars erotica. Foucault formulated this opposition between the two different approaches to sexuality in his famous book, The History of Sexuality. Vol. I: An Introduction (1984).

Although the Neopragmatist Richard Shusterman has presented an excellent book for us to read (Ars Erotica: Sex and Somaesthetics in the Classical Arts of Love, 2021), which will surely be a guide for future generations of scholars, we raise our particular question: what is Pragmatism's unique relationship to sexuality? More precisely, how did Pragmatist philosophers relate to this topic?

The papers should be between 15-20 pages (6000-9000 words).

The deadline for paper submission is September 30, 2023

Please send papers to Dr. Donald Morse (dmorse@webster.edu) and Dr. Alexander Kremer (kremeralexander5@gmail.com).

Decisions will be made by October 15, 2023

The anticipated publication date is December 31, 2023
