Aims and Scope
Empedocles aims to provide a publication and discussion platform for those working at the interface of philosophy and the study of communication, in all its aspects. The editors believe that philosophical reflection and analysis regarding communication is an intellectually exciting enterprise in its own right, but also important for today’s globalising and increasingly mediatised societies. They also believe that approaching traditional philosophical disciplines, topics and questions from the point of view of the impact communicative action and practices have on them is a necessary but underdeveloped area of intellectual activity.
This Journal is published in cooperation with the Section for the Philosophy of Communication of ECREA, the European Communication Research and Education Association. Its editorial team is formed by Dr Johan Siebers (Middlesex University London), Prof. Dr. Bart Vandenabeele (University fo Ghent) and Dr. Tino Meitz (University of Surrey).
Call for Papers
Empedocles publishes double-blind peer reviewed articles (6,000-8,000 words), as well as book reviews, interviews and discussions. We want to facilitate the development of philosophies of communication and their application to other areas of research, intellectual and creative practice and cultural and political action, in a way that is truly useful and interesting. Work from all disciplines, schools and traditions in philosophy, communication studies and related areas of research is welcome.
Empedocles: European Journal for the Philosophy of Communication, will be published from 2009. Interested authors are invited to contact us and/or to submit papers (6,000-8,000 words) using the following email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
