EJPAP is an online peer reviewed journal which stems from the experience of the Cultural Society Pragma. It is published twice a year and is accessible on line free of subscription.

EJPAP publishes articles which explore the American tradition in philosophy, with a special focus on pragmatism and on the relationships of pragmatism to the European philosophy. Both historically minded and present-oriented papers are welcomed. EJPAP promotes exploration of interdisciplinary issues and approaches and favors the dialogue among different philosophical traditions. To that extent, EJPAP welcomes contributions dealing with any field of philosophical inquiry: epistemology, philosophy of language, metaphysics and philosophy of science, philosophy of mind and action, ethics, aesthetics, social & political philosophy.

EJPAP offers worldwide scholars a reliable source for state of the art research through the publication of high quality research works. It provides also a shared platform for exchanging ideas, sharing research interests, framing research networks. The journal has been launched with the awareness of the necessity of a common framework at the European level in order to facilitate the circulation of research outcomes among scholars speaking more than twenty different national languages but often working on very similar topics.

Each issue of EJPAP will generally be composed of the following sections:

  • Symposia: articles devoted to the exploration of a specific theme, associated to a call for papers available in the Forthcoming section of the journal;

  • Essays: publishes a selection of the papers received by the journal in the former six or twelve months. Selection of papers is done by a peer review committee. Papers should be sent to EJPAP following the instructions available in the Manuscripts & Submissions section of the journal;

  • Multilingual: peer-reviewed original articles in French, German, Italian and Spanish received by the journal in the past six to twelve months. Papers should be sent to EJPAP following the instructions available in the Manuscripts & Submissions section of the journal;

  • Book Symposia: commissioned symposia on recent publications on American philosophy and pragmatism with the responses of the authors;

  • Interviews: commissioned interviews with established scholars on various aspects of their work;

  • Book Reviews: reviews of recently published works concerning topics covered by the journal. This section is intended at making accessible works written in European languages and liable to receive little audience outside the range of speakers of that language, but reviews of any book concerning Pragmatism and American philosophy are welcomed. Proposals and submissions should follow instructions available in the Manuscripts & Submissions section of the journal.

Information Multilingual Section – July 2017

Established in 2009 thanks to the efforts of its Executive Editors Rosa Maria Calcaterra, Giovanni Maddalena and Roberto Frega, The European Journal of Pragmatism and American Philosophy has been since associated with Associazione Culturale Pragma. The idea behind the launching of the journal was to having a distinctively European forum for the discussion of pragmatism and American philosophy more in general: a role that EJPAP has played and continues to play remarkably well, making it a reference point for pragmatist and American scholarship in Europe and worldwide. Bearing witness of this success is the elevate number of submissions and of visits the journal receives each month. The editorial board is, for the exception of one (American) member, all-European, gathering scholars from three different countries (Italy, France, Poland). The scientific board boosts these numbers even further, with the addition of Finnish, Spanish, English, German, Brazilian, New Zeland, Argentinian scholars.

Given the success of the journal, and in order to be ever more faithful to its original spirit and mission, from the first issue of 2018 we plan to add a Multilingual section hosting original peer-reviewed contributions in languages other than English (Italian, French, German, and Spanish to begin with). This is a political choice aimed at giving prominence to the European languages alongside the English one, giving in this way the chance to a much wider pool of scholars to partake and contribute to the philosophical conversation on pragmatism and American philosophy without sacrificing the conceptual and linguistic nuances of one’s native language. This operation shall widen the audience of pragmatist studies, create a network for the various regional contexts of scholarship, and encourage the deepening of pragmatism’s multi-cultural and multi-lingual history and legacy. We would then encourage both non-English speakers pragmatist scholars to consider EJPAP as a publication venue and reference, and scholars from all around the world to engage with European versions of pragmatism in their domestic language.

Papers should be sent to EJPAP following the instructions available in the Manuscript & Submission section of the journal.

Submissions will be evaluated on a continuous basis, and the deadline to be considered for the 2018, 1 issue is 1 March 2018.
