CFP: War and Philosophy – Journal of Continental Philosophy

“What is a state of war? What is a civil war? And if the death penalty is abolished within a country in peacetime, what is going to define the enemy, the public enemy, as Rousseau says, and wartime? External war and civil war? I leave in reserve here what stands at the heart of the problem: not only the definition of the exception, of the state of exception, but of war and the state of war.” (Jacques Derrida, The Death Penalty, Vol. I, pp. 125–6)
“What is a state of war?” The phrase suggests at least two things: a condition of war, or a state which wars. War is defined in statutes, conventions, constitutions. Just as Derrida’s meditations on the death penalty situate it at the centre of philosophy, so war might occupy a central role in understanding contemporary societies and life. What is it? Where is it? How does it constitute a state? How do philosophy and art respond to this condition?

Contributions addressing these questions are welcome: scholarly articles (including translations), interviews, round table discussions, works of literature.
Manuscripts should be no longer than 10,000 words (excluding footnotes). Please refer to this link<https://protect-au.mimecast.com/s/2f5BCr81nytAzQORNiz6lQ4?domain=pdcnet.org> for more details on submissions guidelines.
Submissions deadline: April 28, 2023. Please send submissions and proposals to: jcp at westernsydney.edu.au<mailto:jcp at westernsydney.edu.au>

The JCP Editorial Team


I acknowledge that the land on which I live and work is stolen land. That the Gadigal People of the Eora Nation and the Darug People of the Darug Nation have never ceded their sovereignty on these lands, and that treaties are yet to be negotiated.
I additionally acknowledge the Gadigal People's and the Darug People's living culture, knowledge and struggle in this region.

I pledge my ongoing solidarity with the traditional owners, and all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders peoples, in their struggle for recognition of sovereignty, historical truths and justice.
