Philosophy and Landscape East and West

Call for Publications

Theme: Philosophy and Landscape East and West
Publication: Journal of Aesthetics and Phenomenology
Date: Special Issue (Vol. 7, No. 2, 2020)
Deadline: 31.5.2020

The landscapes we live within play a vital role in all aspects of
human life and have become an important locus of phenomenological
analysis. Often, landscapes are venerated for their beauty,
sublimity, or their sacred status. Others, those too close to notice,
the mundane landscapes of our everyday lives, hide themselves and in
so doing are no less (or perhaps more) important for determining how
we are as human beings, how we move, perceive, imagine, and think,
perhaps even how we philosophize. We find ourselves as earthbound
beings among the landscapes of the sacred and the mundane, the
elevated and the everyday, the visible and the invisible. Inquiring
between and beyond these binaries, the Fall 2020 volume of the
Journal of Aesthetics and Phenomenology will explore the various
thinkers and artists East and West who have disclosed the rich
potential of landscape for philosophy. Submissions are welcome from
all philosophical approaches and traditions exploring any number of
issues or debates relating to and expanding the philosophies and
phenomenological analysis of aesthetic issues relating to landscape;
including, landscape art, painting, sculpture, landscape gardens,
representations in cinema, virtual landscapes, topics relating to
landscape and territory, migration, pilgrimage, religion,
boundaries/borders, geophilosophy, the environment, as well as
philosophies of place, environmental aesthetics, and issues arising
from intercultural dialogue on landscape art and aesthetics.

We welcome in particular submissions that are grounded in the
phenomenological tradition. Of course, relevant papers grounded in
other philosophical traditions are welcome, although we ask that
authors show sensitivity to the journal’s philosophical orientation.

The editors invite articles on these and other topics related to
Landscape East and West. Submissions will go through a blind review
process and four of them will be selected for publication by the
guest editor.

The maximum length of the article is 8,000 words. Please follow the
journal’s style guidelines:
