Call for Papers: The Practical Philosophy of Michel Henry
Volume XX, no. 2 (2012)

The Journal of French and Francophone Philosophy (www.jffp.org) invites submissions for a special issue on the practical philosophy of Michel Henry. Increasing attention is being paid to Michel Henry’s work, especially with reagrad to its impact in the areas of phenomenology and theology. This issue hopes to build on the existing momentum in Henry studies by extending it to his important contributions in the areas of social and political philosophy as well as ethics. Important questions in this domain might include What are the implications of Henry’s philosophy of life for a theory of action, normative ethics or an analysis of socio-political questions? What results might his philosophy of life yield, if applied to contemporary issues? Papers that explore Henry’s practical philosophy in relation to other thinkers of interest or that creatively apply or extend under-appreciated aspects of his own work are especially welcomed. Papers can be submitted in French or English. Papers should not exceed 8,000 words in length, and citations should follow the Chicago Manual of Style. All papers will be peer-reviewed by at least two evaluators. To receive full consideration, completed papers should be submitted through the short, five-step submission process on the journal’s website by August 1, 2012.
