“La vie comme phénomène. Variations phénoménologiques / Life as a Phenomenon. Phenomenological Variations:”

The journal Études Phénoménologiques / Phenomenological Studies is seeking submissions in English and French for its second 2017 issue on the topic “Life as a Phenomenon. Phenomenological Variations / La vie comme phénomène. Variations phénoménologiques:”

Deadline: February 1, 2017

Possible topics include, but are not limited to:

  • The notion of Erlebnis (Dilthey, Husserl, and others)
  • The concept of Lebenswelt
  • The phenomenology of life (the early Heidegger, Hans Jonas, Ortega y Gasset, and others)
  • Life and hermeneutics (Gadamer, Ricoeur, and others)
  • The life of consciousness (transcendental life, the status of the biological in human experience, brain and life)

Études Phénoménologiques / Phenomenological Studies is the continuation of the journal Études Phénoménologiques, which was published until 2008. The present journal follows the same spirit of openness to various perspectives. Its publication is the result of a collaboration between the Centre d’Études phénoménologiques at the Université catholique de Louvain and the Department of Philosophy at Marquette University. It is published by Peeters and edited by Danielle Lories and Pol Vandevelde.

The journal publishes articles in French and English. It is dedicated to the general task of showing the relevance and fruitfulness of phenomenology for contemporary issues in philosophy and to be a forum for contemporary discussion of such issues. One of its goals is to bridge the gap between history and philosophy, between continental and analytic philosophy, and between theory and application.

Manuscripts should not exceed 9,000 words (60, 000 characters), including notes and references, a brief abstract (150-200 words) and 5 keywords in English should be placed at the beginning of the paper.
