British Journal of History of Philosophy and “Non-Western” Philosophy

Via Warp, Weft, and Way, from the editor of British Journal of History of Philosophy on its 25th anniversary (bolding is mine):

As we move forward, what we would like to promote, above all, is more work on non-Western philosophy, especially where it seeks to deepen dialogue between the various traditions through critical engagement and fruitful comparison. So here, in particular, we would like to underline that we welcome submissions that discuss non-Western philosophy even if our record to date might suggest otherwise.

Granted, not everyone’s work, as we have discussed numerous times here, easily fits into “history of philosophy,” but given that BJHP is explicitly focusing on critical engagement and fruitful comparison, this announcement could be helpful for a wide range of methodologies.

  1. I would like to personally attest to their openness. One of my publications that has garnered the most interest is my 2013 article in BJHP on the ancient Egyptian work, The Tale of the Eloquent Peasant. BJHP was not only open to the submission but involved Egyptologists in the review process! I am grateful to the journal and highly recommend that readers of this blog help them develop a track record of publishing work on Indian philosophy…

  2. As Editor of the BJHP, let me reiterate here that we are indeed keen to have more submissions on Indian philosophy; and I am pleased to report that we now have Jonardon Ganeri on our Advisory Board to help us with reviewing in this area.
    And thanks to Chike for his nice comment – that was indeed a great paper, and one of our most downloaded.
