The Dia-noesis: A Journal of Philosophy is now accepting submissions for the issue 5. The deadline for submissions is April 20th 2018. Submissions must be in English, in German or in French.
Submissions may be in the form of (1) academic papers, (2) book reviews. Successful authors will be published in both the online and printed edition of the Journal.

Submissions are accepted from any area of philosophy.

Ideally, papers should be between 2,000 – 3,000 words in length, but the Dia-noesis: A Journal of Philosophy will consider submissions of any length. We suggest that you limit your submission to a maximum of 5,000 words, as papers longer than this are better dealt with as a series of shorter, more focused papers. We like work that:
·                     Is carefully structured and clearly written
·                     Is argumentative and not merely descriptive
·                     Engages with the philosophical literature on the chosen topic
·                     Offers a new argument or point of view
