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 (http://www.associazionepragma.com). 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.
