Call for papers – The Kant Yearbook


is now accepting submissions for its second issue in 2010. The KANT YEARBOOK is an international journal that publishes articles on the philosophy of Immanuel Kant. It is the KANT YEARBOOK’s goal to intensify innovative research on Kant on the international scale. For that reason the KANT YEARBOOK prefers to publish articles in English, however articles in German will also be considered. Each issue will be dedicated
to a specific topic.

The second issue’s topic is: METAPHYSICS.

All papers, historical or systematic, related to the problem of METAPHYSICS in Kant’s philosophy are welcome, though there is a strong preference for papers focusing on the classical theoretical meaning of METAPHYSICS like in metaphysica specialis (soul, world/universe, God) and metaphysica generalis (ontology). However, contemporary approaches to METAPHYSICS as they relate to Kantian topics like appearance–thing-in-itself, primary and secondary qualities, substance, causality, freedom, idealism, realism, etc. are also welcome.

The KANT YEARBOOK practices double-blind review, i.e. the reviewers are not aware of the identity of a manuscript’s author, and the author is not aware of the reviewer’s identity. Submitted manuscripts must be anonymous; that is the authors’ names and references to their work capable of identifying them are not to appear in the manuscript.

Detailed instructions and author guidelines are available at
