    Women Philosophers –

    The Journal of the History of Women Philosophers and Scientists (JHWP) is the world’s first journal dedicated to restoring and discussing the history of the texts written by and about women philosophers. We seek to integrate women’s intellectual heritage into the canon of philosophy, the humanities, and the natural and social sciences and publish peer-reviewed articles about women’s contributions to these disciplines. The time period investigated by articles in the Journal of the History of Women Philosophers and Scientists ranges from 2200 BCE to the 20th Century CE in both the Western and non-Western world.

     

    The Journal of the History of Women Philosophers and Scientists publishes biannually a thematic and a non-thematic issue. The Journal of the History of Women Philosophers and Scientists understands itself to be contributing to a renewal of philosophy and as a critical instrument to the hitherto studied traditions.

     

    The first issue is devoted to the pressing questions of the present, which goes hand in hand with the rediscovery of the history of women philosophers and scientists.

    • Should these newly discovered texts be placed within the patriarchal context or do we need a new start?
    • Do the texts of women philosophers fit seamlessly into the conventionalized patriarchal historiography or do they revolutionize our cultural intellectual habitudes?
    • What role do women from history play regarding non-Western philosophy, colonialism and classism?
    • How does the history of women philosophers contribute to promoting change in philosophy, politics, science?

     

    Please submit your anonymized paper (7.500-10.000 words) for peer review to the editors-in-chief (email addresses below) no later than June 30, 2022. Publication date of Volume 1, Issue 1 is Spring 2023.
