    Aims and Scope

    Mission statement

    SATS publishes accessible, high-quality academic articles in all traditions and fields of philosophy. As a broad philosophy journal, it is our mission to promote philosophical dialogue across disciplinary boundaries, within philosophy and with neighboring fields. To achieve this, articles submitted to SATS should

    • be jargon-free and written in clear accessible prose

    • address a broad audience of philosophers and philosophically oriented academics

    • seek to contextualise the philosophical questions addressed

    Contemporary academic philosophy is characterised by increased specialisation and small technical and scholarly debates. Although such discussions are crucial for the development and growth of knowledge, they require a counterbalance in the form of texts and contexts of broader scope. We believe that original research in philosophy can be written in a non-technical, lucid style and that philosophical discussions have much to gain from such work. To support a fruitful exchange of ideas, we encourage authors to explicate technical issues, and to clarify the relevance of their work to non-specialists.

    We strongly support submissions that contextualise philosophy by bringing it into dialogue with other fields, for instance literary studies, history, sociology, anthropology, mathematics or the natural sciences. We also believe that philosophy benefits from dealing with the immediate concerns of modern societies, and that modern societies benefit from more engaged forms of philosophy. SATS is happy to provide a venue for articles that put philosophy to work beyond specialised philosophical discussions.

    Call for Papers - Special Issue: The Crisis in Philosophy


    In an increasingly technological and globalised world demands on resources, instability, and conflict are rising with ever more urgent needs to find interdisciplinary solutions to complex problems. Many non-philosophers view pursuing philosophy for its own sake as an expensive luxury which can be spared. In this context there are growing intellectual and institutional pressures on philosophy to justify its relevance and contribution to contemporary economic, social and political issues. From within the discipline philosophy is also under pressure, with increased questioning from philosophers about a perceived lack of progress and whether some well-established methods of philosophical inquiry are contributing to this. More broadly, there remains a fundamental lack of agreement on what would constitute progress of a desirable kind and what general approaches would facilitate this.

    This special issue will explore the crisis in philosophy through contextualized, accessible papers on the status and nature of philosophy. Papers could cover a wide range of topics within this broad area including why philosophy should matter, how it should matter, what sort of contributions philosophy could possibly make, philosophy within the public intellectual tradition, the extent to which philosophy does and can progress, and what might be done to restore the intellectual centrality of philosophy.
