CFP: Philosophy and the Martial Arts

We are currently intending to produce an edited collection of academic essays on the philosophy of the martial arts, to be published by a good academic publisher. We invite contributions.

The martial arts may be Eastern or Western, ancient or modern. The scope is not restricted to any school or tradition of philosophy, and we do not favour any particular area of expertise, e.g. aesthetics, metaphysics, ethics. The important thing is that the essays be of high philosophical quality and be related to a or some martial art(s).

Papers will be peer-reviewed by at least two scholars before inclusion in the volume. An appropriate publisher will be approached if and when we have a sufficient number of suitable papers.

Papers must be received by the editors by 1st July, 2011. Expressions of interest and requests for information can be sent to Damon Young,

Please circulate this CFP widely.
