CFP – Aspects of Theism

Posted on December 2, 2006


The Philosophical Quarterly invites submissions for its 2007 international prize essay competition, the topic of which is ‘Aspects of Theism’.Essays are invited that consider arguments for or against the central claims of (mono)theism; that explore its meaning, including its conceptual or propositional content, and its broader significance; or which connect it with issues in other areas of philosophy, such as metaphysics, philosophy of mind, philosophy of science, philosophy of value, and political and social philosophy.

While it may be appropriate to consider ideas drawn from historical figures, essays should address problematic issues rather than be studies in the history of philosophy. Similarly, while ideas of contemporary thinkers may be examined, essays should aim to do more than provide critical discussions of current work.

The closing date for submissions is 1st November 2007.

Essays should conform to the journal’s usual stylistic requirements – for details visit and click on ‘author guidelines’. Electronic submissions are preferred, but submissions via regular mail will be accepted. If submissions are mailed, please include three copies (these will not be returned). All entries will be regarded as
submissions for publication in The Philosophical Quarterly, and both winning and non-winning entries judged to be of sufficient quality will be published.

All submissions should be headed ‘Aspects of Theism Competition’ (with the author’s name and address given in a covering letter, but NOT in the essay itself) and sent  to:
