Folgende Fragen werden dabei diskutiert: Wie existieren kollektive Personen, falls sie überhaupt existieren? Worin besteht die Identität kollektiver Personen? Können kollektive Personen etwas wissen? Inwiefern können kollektive Personen handeln und zur Rechenschaft gezogen werden? Wie ist kollektives Handeln im Sinne der Mensch-Maschine-Interaktion zu verstehen?
The book series Philosophy and Human Rights provides a venue for outstanding scholarship on contemporary and newly emerging issues in the context of human rights theory and practice in philosophy including the philosophy of technology. The series favors monographs on human rights that work at the cutting edge of ethics/applied philosophy, social and political philosophy, and law, but it will also consider excellent edited volumes at the intersection of mentioned fields.
This peer-reviewed series aims at providing readers with new perspectives on international debates in the Philosophy of Education. It is geared towards fostering debates across methodological and philosophical divisions and is open to a plurality of philosophical themes related to education. These may include, for instance, contemporary debates on the aims of education, on moral, political, and environmental education, as well as themes related to educational ethics and the history of philosophy of education. Questions may be of a foundational theoretical nature, as well as more applied, concerning issues that arise in addressing problems of educational practice and their role in society. Contributions may be either in English or in German.

Studies in Research Integrity is a forum for monographs and edited collections focusing on research integrity topics in the humanities and social sciences. Recent years have seen increased attention to issues in research integrity, yet the emphasis has largely been from the viewpoint of the natural and biomedical sciences. Studies in Research Integrity provides an established forum for investigations principally from the perspective of the humanities and social sciences. Volumes in the series consider the research practices of particular disciplines, the markers of success and failure in carrying out reliable and compliant research in individual fields, and the institutional factors that affect the responsible conduct of research. As a contribution to the ethical analysis of research, the series covers topics from the production of research to its dissemination.

Manuscripts should be at least 80,000 words in length (including footnotes and bibliography). Manuscripts may also include illustrations and other visual material.

Authors are cordially invited to submit proposals and/or full manuscripts by email to the publisher Jason Prevost. Please direct all other correspondence to Associate Editor Simona Casadio.

Authors will find general proposal guidelines at the Brill Author Gateway.

Philosophy, Literature, Culture

Critical Plant Studies is a field that has grown in popularity over recent years. Brill is proud to have launched Critical Plant Studies, the original series with this title, with leading expert Michael Marder in 2013.

The goal of the Critical Plant Studies is to initiate an interdisciplinary dialogue, whereby philosophy and literature would learn from each other to think about, imagine, and describe, vegetal life with critical awareness, conceptual rigor, and ethical sensitivity. Literary works featuring plant imagery may be analyzed with reference to philosophical frameworks, while philosophical discussions of the meanings of vegetal life may be enriched and supported with the tools of literary criticism. Another dialogic dimension of the series entails a sustained engagement between Western and non-Western philosophies and religious traditions, representative of the human attitudes to plants. This “cross-pollination” of different fields of knowledge and experience will become possible thanks to the fundamental role plants play in human life, regardless of their backgrounding or neglect.

Ethically stated, the aim of the book series is to encourage an incremental shift of cultural attitudes from a purely instrumental to a respectful approach to vegetal beings. This is particularly important at the current time of the global environmental crisis, when massive de-forestation, seed patenting, and profit-driven agriculture threaten the very future of life on the planet. Not only will works included in the series shed light on the being of plants, but they will also assist us in critically thinking through the crucial issues and challenges of the contemporary world. Bioethics and genetic engineering, of which plants were the first examples; the role of spirituality and holism in the techno-scientific age; the reliance of our imagination and creativity on elements of the “natural” world; global food shortages and sustainable agricultural practices; the roots of our thinking and writing in other-than-human, vegetal processes, such as growth and decay, germination and branching out, fecundation and fruition—books included in Critical Plant Studies will, in one way or another, touch upon these and related themes central to the philosophy, literature, and culture of the twenty-first century.

Thus, we are looking to publish a mix of specialized manuscripts and introductory texts on the theory, literary criticism, and religious or aesthetic appreciation of plant life. Each title in the series will combine at least two of the disciplines listed above, with preference given to cutting-edge methodologies in comparative literature, comparative philosophy, comparative religious studies, etc., and trans-disciplinary approaches. Analyses of plant-related writings and artworks from any historical period and geographical area will be welcome.

The mission of the Animals and Society Institute is to advance human knowledge to improve animal lives. Our vision is a compassionate world where animals flourish. The Brill Human-Animal Studies Series supports this mission and vision by publishing books that explore the relationship between human and nonhuman animals. It intentionally casts a wide net, producing titles from any setting, contemporary, historical, and prehistorical from the perspective of various disciplines within both the social sciences and humanities. The broad scope of the series is an acknowledgement of the contributions of a range of perspectives from across academia that often intersect in meaningful ways to build a scholarship of the nonhuman experience through a human lens. In the process, these books challenge the disciplinary cloisters that often hinder the transdisciplinary analysis that is vital to one the fastest growing fields in the academy. Whether examining the lived reality of nonhuman animals in environmental or legal settings or parsing human representations of those animals in popular culture, the Brill Human-Animal Studies Series presents a wide range of cutting-edge scholarship that always retains an eye to helping animals flourish and creating a more compassionate world.
Philosophy as a Way of Life (PWL) is both a meta-philosophy and a methodological approach to the study of philosophy, inspired by the work of the French scholar Pierre Hadot (1922-2010). As a methodology, PWL emphasizes that all ancient philosophical works reflect pedagogical and psychagogic concerns, and argues that these features should continue to be taken into account in contemporary philosophy. It is based largely on the practice of “spiritual exercises”, intended to transform the practitioner’s way of perceiving the world, and hence her mode of being, in order to enable her to lead a freer, more happy existence. Thus, PWL views philosophy in its fullest sense as profoundly transformational.

Philosophy as a Way of Life: Texts and Studies will make available English translations of key studies on PWL and publish scholarly monographs and edited collections that consider its different aspects and implications.

Books in this series will explore PWL in antiquity, the renaissance, the early modern period, and up to the present, PWL as a methodological approach to the history of philosophy, the implications of PWL for understanding education and its history, the cross-cultural possibilities it opens up, the relationships between PWL, virtue ethics and philosophy of culture, and the different literary genres of PWL, including the way these genres impact the style and content of ancient, medieval and early modern philosophical works.
Anglican-Episcopal Theology and History covers aspects of the Anglican-Episcopal tradition from the Reformation to the present, in both its historical and theological forms, including historical theology. The volumes in the series comprise monographs, themed collected studies and rigorously revised doctoral dissertations. All proposed works will be peer-reviewed. Publications are in paperback and electronic format.

This is a new series with an average of one volume per year.
Phänomene, Formen und Methoden
Die philosophischen Dimensionen der Digitalisierung werden in diesem Band multiperspektivisch untersucht. Zu den Themen gehören „Digitalisierung und Kritik“, „Ethik und Privatheit“ sowie „Realität und Virtualität“. Auch die grundsätzliche Frage nach den Möglichkeiten einer „digitalen Philosophie“ wird aufgeworfen. Die neuen Technologien von Internet, Künstlicher Intelligenz und virtueller Realität werden in den philosophischen Blick genommen – nicht um sie schematisch zu kategorisieren, zu fixieren oder zu reduzieren, sondern um diese in ihrer phänomenologischen Reichhaltigkeit zu erfassen und kritisch zu reflektieren.
