Philosophy and Geography
Published/Hosted by Taylor and Francis Group.
Philosophy and Geography was started as a peer refereed annual series of themed volumes intended to bring together discussions between the disciplines on issues of space, place, and environment. The publication was founded on the belief that a structural union of Philosophy and Geography would enrich ongoing work in many areas - environmental ethics, social and political philosophy, philosophy of science, philosophy of technology, iconography of landscape, and the exploration of cultural geographies - as well as stimulate new work in other areas and in other disciplines. Now in our move to a semi-annual, open submission publication, Philosophy and Geography aims to publish the best and clearest philosophical work on the environment: human and natural, built and wild, as well as clear-headed meditations on the nature of space and place. While the scope of the journal overlaps with subfields such as environmental philosophy and cultural geography, it is also not limited to those concerns. Typical articles in Philosophy and Geography combine analytic rigor with a breadth of imagination. Welcome too are theoretical analyses of practical applications of environmental, urban, and regional policies as well as concrete proposals for grounding our spatial policy apparatus in more robust normative foundations. Articles may be theoretical or empirical, and may view their problem from various scholarly perspectives, including historical or cross-cultural comparison, and connect their themes to moral, political, social, or legal philosophy. Because the audience for this volume is multidisciplinary, authors are strongly encouraged to write in a style that is generally accessible. This does not necessarily mean that the material must be simplified, but that extra care must be taken to avoid jargon, to situate questions in a wider academic context, and to be clear about the purpose of the stated inquiry.
