The aim of the Brill Research Perspectives in Philosophy of Education (RPPES) series is to provide short monographs on central aspects of the field of philosophy of education, such as central thinkers (classical and recent), seminal works, movements and schools of thought, important ideas and concepts. The long-term aim is to establish an encyclopedic series of philosophy of education monographs, where each volume can be updated when needed, and main subjects can be expanded and specified to have more than one volume.
RPPES will offer a comprehensive reference resource for scholars and students working in the areas of, especially, philosophy of education, pedagogy – i.e. Pädagogik, pédagogique, pedagogía – and educational studies in general. Moreover, through its philosophical emphasis and depth, the series will be of interest to general philosophy, i.e. logics, theory of knowledge, metaphysics, ethics, political and social philosophy as well as poetics and aesthetics and the history of philosophy.
The series provides in-depth scholarly work on the main issues and figures in philosophy of education. This includes scholarly studies of classics such as Plato, Rousseau, Dewey et al., systematic analysis of concepts such as learning, childhood, virtue, citizenship education and imagination, as well as the major traditions and schools within philosophy of education.
The series makes it a priority to include not just established views and figures, but also up-and-coming scholars and marginal perspectives, thus bridging gaps between philosophy of education, philosophy and education, as well as Anglophone and non-Anglophone research communities. Each monograph is fully peer-reviewed and referenced and provides an overview of the most up-to-date research in the area dealt with. RPPES will be an invaluable resource for scholars wishing to draw on the latest research, as well as a dynamic resource for teaching and for students working in philosophy, education and related fields.

Modern Intellectual Trends is a peer reviewed book series that includes monographs, edited volumes, critical editions (for text from the pre-print age) in the original languages and scripts, and annotated translations on intellectual history from the 18th century to the present. The coverage includes philosophy, theology, hermeneutics, mysticism, views and debates on science and the so-called occult sciences, political thought, gender, legal theory, nahḍa studies, postcolonial studies, and adjacent areas, i.e. in intellectual history in the broadest sense. The series welcomes transregional and transcultural contributions.
The series will be open for publications on modern thought from the global south, with a special focus on the Middle East (Arab world, Turkey, Iran), but also the Balkans, South Asia, Southeast Asia, Central Asia, Africa, as well as the Muslim diaspora. Submissions in Arabic, Persian, Turkish, and other non-Western languages, will also be considered, in addition to English, French, and German.
The International Association for Aesthetics’ book series, Transcultural Aesthetics, represents research findings and continuing discussions by members of the International Association for Aesthetics (IAA) and by invited guest-authors and guest-editors as well. The multinational character of IAA, its geographical and ethnic diversity, provides, through these monographs and edited volumes, a forum for the critical interpretation of issues and debates within contemporary global aesthetics. Furthermore, this poly-facetted spectrum generates a repertoire differing in methodological perspectives, disciplines, and specializations. The association is thus addressing with its series some of the most urgent global challenges from the perspective of aesthetics: inter- and trans-disciplinary western and non-western aesthetics, geopolitical aesthetics (ecologically and politically motivated migration; re-evaluating colonialism and its cultural heritage), relations between philosophical and cultural oriented aesthetics, media- and techno-aesthetics, aesthetics of historical and contemporary arts. The Transcultural Aesthetics book series publishes individual and collective works in which historical, geographical, and contemporary problems of understanding and developing aesthetic theories are elaborated in a transdisciplinary way, thus exploring novel fields of aesthetic discourse. In going beyond this goal, it explicitly aims, in juxtaposing traditional as well as current aesthetic concepts from different cultures, at a continuous synergetic exchange of critical ideas.
Die Digitalisierung durchdringt und formt zunehmend unsere Lebenswelt, Kultur und Wissenschaft. Auch für die Philosophie hat die digitale Transformation gewichtige Folgen. Zum einen stellen sich neue Fragen und Probleme, welche die traditionellen Bereiche der Ethik, Erkenntnistheorie, Ontologie und Ästhetik herausfordern. Zum andern wird durch die digitalen Medien auch die Praxis des Philosophierens transformiert. Die Reihe Philosophia Digitalis versteht sich als ein Forum für Studien, die diese doppelte philosophische Bedeutung der Digitalisierung kritisch reflektieren und anhand von neuen Medien und Technologien explorieren.
Digitalization is increasingly permeating and shaping our lives, culture and science. The digital transformation also has major ramifications for philosophy. On the one hand, new questions and problems arise that challenge the traditional fields of ethics, epistemology, ontology and aesthetics. On the other hand, digital media are also transforming the practice of doing philosophy. The Philosophia Digitalis series sees itself as a forum for studies that critically reflect on this twofold philosophical significance of digitization and explore it by looking at new media and technologies.

The series „Contemporary Perspectives in European Philosophy“ publishes contributions that critically engage with 20th century European philosophy and open up new perspectives for contemporary thinking. Through the publication of a fresh scholarship on some of its main traditions (phenomenology, existentialism, hermeneutics, (post-)structuralism, critical theory, pragmatism, psychoanalysis, deconstruction), as well as through the exploration of hitherto overlooked objects, it aims at defending philosophy’s inherent pluralism of forms.
Die Reihe „Zeitgenössische Perspektiven europäischer Philosophie“ veröffentlicht Studien, die sich mit der europäischen Philosophie des 20. Jahrhunderts kritisch auseinandersetzen und dem Gegenwartsdenken neue Perspektiven eröffnen. Ob durch neuartige Zugänge zu einigen ihrer Hauptströmungen (Phänomenologie, Existenzialismus, Hermeneutik, (Post-)Strukturalismus, kritische Theorie, Pragmatismus, Psychoanalyse, Dekonstruktion) oder durch die Einbeziehung bislang vernachlässigter Untersuchungsfelder, zielt sie darauf ab, den genuinen Formenpluralismus der Philosophie zu verteidigen.
Critical posthumanism can be understood as the discourse that deconstructively inhabits humanism and critiques its anthropocentrism. It works both genealogically – in historicising the contemporary figure of the posthuman – and speculatively – in imagining, analysing and evaluating scenarios of humanity’s perceived exceptionalism, challenges, or ends. It thus critically engages with unsettling anticipations of the future, provides timely critiques of the present and produces rewritings and alternative narratives with a postanthropocentric or nonhuman dimension. Critical posthumanism’s concerns typically embrace the impacts of bio- and digital technology; ecological crises; the development of artificial intelligence; more-than-human ethics; politics and justice and their interdisciplinary debate within the new or posthumanities.
Critical Posthumanisms is a series addressing all the above. It publishes cutting-edge monographs and edited collections focusing on the rise of posthumanism and its forms, perspectives and directions. It makes available studies by scholars whose perspectives on the posthuman, nonhuman or more-than-human vary in important and interesting ways, and should serve as a crucial point of reference for anybody working within the field.
Books within the series provide:
- inter- or multidisciplinary takes on posthumanism, the posthuman, nonhuman or more-than-human, particularly those allowing the new humanities or posthumanities to critically engage with areas like artificial intelligence, biotechnology, virtual reality, climate change, geo-engineering, etc.;
- analyses of the histories, genealogies, idioms, and canons of different posthumanisms and discussions of the main sources, thinkers and trends of posthumanism;
- alternative formulations of posthumanism, which problematise the centrality of technology;
- philosophical and political critiques of the prosthesisation, enhancement, transformation or transcendence of the human or nonhuman;
- investigations into the role and future of fictional and speculative discourses in literature, film, art, performance, media and science involving scenarios of posthumanisation (or becoming-other-than-human).
Authors are cordially invited to submit proposals and/or full manuscripts to the publisher at BRILL, Christa Stevens.
Manuscripts for this series should eventually follow MHRA style, and preferably use UK spelling.
