CALL FOR PAPERS – Ecological Thinking within a Globalized World

Dialogue and UniversalismE, a peer-reviewed, open-access international forum for philosophical dialogue devoted to issues of global and contemporary social importance.  Dialogue and UniversalismE is dedicated to the philosophical analysis of issues relevant to making the world a more decent, just, and humane home for all living beings.  Towards this goal, the journal takes dialogue to be the ultimate arbiter of any shared values strong enough to serve as reliable guides to a healthy, sustainable, and just future for humanity and the larger community of life.  It strives to cultivate the sort of philosophical dialogue necessary to transcend ideologies of domination and hopes to advance an ethos of dialogue as a community-building praxis.

Possible paper topics include but are not limited to the following: pluralism and universalism in ecological philosophy, the role of place in environmental ethics, political ideology in environmental thought, environmental philosophy and the East West dichotomy, environmental justice and ecological citizenship, traditional ecological knowledge,  and non-western approaches to ecological philosophy.  All styles of philosophy as well as interdisciplinary approaches are welcomed.
