Here’s some news about a couple of online ethics journals that I’ve mentioned before. I haven’t been tracking it for OPP for some reason, but here’s the first three articles from the Journal of Ethics and Social Philosophy
Is Gibbard a Realist?, by Laura Schroeter and Francois Schroeter
Essentially Comparative Concepts, by Jonathan Dancy
The Good, the Bad, and the Blameworthy, by Neil Levy
And Studies in the History of Ethics has a call for papers on The Ethics of War and Peace in Historical Perspective, which is excerpted below the fold.
bq.. Authors are invited to submit manuscripts of 4,000-10,000 words that offer historical insight into ethical questions surrounding war and peace. The editors are interested in historically-oriented papers that address such topics as:
- The historical origins and development of realism, pacifism, and just war theory
- The significance of modern war technologies or tactics for traditional ethical doctrines about war
- The relationship between the ethics of war and larger issues in international political theory and philosophy (sovereignty, states’ rights, human rights, etc.)
- The development of principles of jus ad bellum and jus in bello
- Conditions and establishment of just peace
- Contrasts between contemporary and historical appraoches to the ethics of war
- Discussions of the views of key figures in historical thinking about the ethics of war
