Monographic issue dedicated to the memory of E. Anscombe Title of the issue: “Reason, reasoning and action”

Enrahonar. An international journal of theoretical and practical reason
Monographic issue dedicated to the memory of E. Anscombe
Title of the issue: “Reason, reasoning and action”

The main goal of this special issue is to provide an updated portrait of Elizabeth Anscombe’s philosophy marking her centenary (1919). Our intention is to explore the metaphysical and epistemological aspects of Anscombe’s positions in domains ranging from philosophy of logic through epistemology and philosophy of mind to philosophy of action and moral philosophy.

In this special issue we are first of all interested in exploring an Anscombian view of reason, reasoning and action. Connected questions and topics such as practical knowledge and truth, moral philosophy and virtue, self-knowledge and the first person or questions concerning the interpretation of Wittgenstein are also of interest.

It will be soon the anniversary Anscombe’s An Introduction to Wittgenstein’s ‘Tractatus’, which was first published in 1959. This is a book with which Anscombe, as e.g. Cora Diamond noticed, inaugurated a radical change in how the Tractatus is read. We would be pleased if the side of her work which bears on the interpretation of Wittgenstein is also object of attention in this issue.

We invite papers that address the questions above or others in relation to Anscombe’s work.

The main languages of the journal are Catalan, Spanish and English.
Articles may be no longer than 9,000 words.
The deadline for peer-reviewed abstracts is May 31st, 2019.
Accepted Manuscripts should be sent no later than November 15th, 2019 to any of the guest editors:
