About the Journal

«Phenomenology and Mind» is an international, double-blind peer-reviewed, and fully open access journal founded in 2011; each issue is available on request also in printed edition.
Born of a happy match between Phenomenology and Analytic Philosophy of Mind, the journal puts personhood or the moral agent in the focus of philosophical concern. It takes over the Enlightenment’s legacy as commitment to critical reason, and promotes discussion and interchange among different methodological approaches, thereby overcoming barriers no longer justified in the present age of international, interdisciplinary research communities.
We publish articles in English. Exceptionally and on occasion of particular topics, other European languages (German, French, Italian) are admitted.

Call for Papers

Our aim is to focus on the core task of phenomenology, i.e., the description of concrete phenomena. This means especially: We do not want historical or meta-theoretical contributions regarding phenomenology, nor the works of certain phenomenologists. By this we intend to showcase phenomenology as a specific practice of philosophy in an exemplary way.

Concrete descriptions of different phenomena should be developed, and their validity discussed – descriptions, which are phenomenological in a specific sense, because they fulfill two criteria: firstly, they refer to experiences as experiences from the first-person perspective and secondly, they claim to determine necessary characteristics for this kind of experience through eidetic variations. Regarding the selection of phenomena, the special issue pursues a great variety. In the selection of phenomena, this special issue of Phenomenology and Mind strives for the greatest possible breadth. Descriptions of classical phenomena like: perception, imagination, time, body, morality, feeling, gender, art, literature and image; but also attempts to discover phenomena as phenomena sui generis through phenomenological description: such as from the fields of sport and movement, work and everyday life, quarantine and disease, digitality and technology, drugs and addiction, violence and conflict, kitsch and fashion.
