CfP special issue of BJP on "Facets of Rationality: Reasoning, Communication and Decision making"

Deadline: 30 November 2014

The Balkan Journal of Philosophy is pleased to announce the topic of the 2015 issue: 'Facets of Rationality: Reasoning, Communication and Decision making'.

"Human actions in all their appearances are evaluated and assessed as rational or irrational. Subject to evaluation are everyday thinking and decision-making, scientific research, economic and political behavior, even love-affaires and sport competitions, as well as communication and speech acts of all kinds. Rationality is a normative concept in the sense that it is supposed to provide a standard or criteria to evaluate a piece of reasoning or an instance of decision-making. Why is this important? Using these criteria we are able to evaluate, control and regulate our own and others actions, thinking and decision-making".

You are kindly invited to submit a paper on any of these topics. Papers should be between 6000 and 8000 words. The deadline for receiving manuscripts is the end of November 2014 but earlier submissions would be appreciated. This special issue will appear in 2015.
