Volume 7: Teaching Philosophy as a Way of Life
American Association of Philosophy Teachers Studies in Pedagogy is a peer-reviewed annual journal dedicated to publishing thematically focused volumes of original works on teaching and learning in philosophy. The thematic volumes include a range of contributions, from practical advice to theoretical discussions. Contributions are welcomed from anyone teaching philosophy, including high school teachers, graduate students, new faculty, and tenured professors.
The AAPT Studies in Pedagogy is soliciting original papers for consideration in our upcoming volume on Teaching Philosophy as a Way of Life broadly construed.
Over the last decade or so, the way-of-life conception of philosophy has evoked an exciting and growing interest for reviving an ancient idea of philosophy as a guide to a good life. Though rooted in the work of Pierre Hadot, the aim of this volume reaches far beyond Hadot scholarship. Those who center the way-of-life approach value philosophy as a practice that can guard against the instrumentalization and economization of our day-to-day lives. Philosophy shapes how we attend to and engage our inner and outer worlds, while promoting individual and collective intentionality, reflection, and enlarged thoughtfulness.
We anticipate the final articles will run between 4000-9000 words, depending on the topic. Submissions should be prepared for anonymous review. While not required for review of paper submissions, final papers will need to follow Chicago Manual of Style 17th ed. guidelines. In matters where CMoS allows for variable formatting we have a house style that is followed.
Deadline: November 1, 2021
