Studies in Phenomenology

Call for papers

Knowledge-that/knowledge-how: between phenomenology and analytic philosophy – Thematic dossier of Studia UBB Philosophia (Issue 3/2020)

Possible topics include (but are not limited to):

  • The (in)sufficiency of linguistic arguments for establishing theories about knowledge and cognition
  • The relation between knowledge (-how, -that, or knowledge in general) and skill. The relation between knowledge, intelligence, and intelligent action. Can we have non-propositional knowledge that is nevertheless intelligent in its manifestation? What determines when something is propositional?
  • The role of representations in defining knowledge and mediating between knowledge and action. Modes of presentation. Are modes of presentation fit to provide the interface between knowledge and action, as the intellectualist would want?
  • Accounts of knowledge in general and of various types of knowledge. What are the perspectives for compositional counterarguments to intellectualism? Should the difficulties encountered in specifying a strict demarcation between types of knowledge reflect back on the concept of knowledge itself?

Papers should be written in English. Their length should be between 5000 and 8000 words. The papers should be accompanied by a short abstract written in English (maximum 300 words), 3-8 keywords and a short biography of the author(s).

Deadline for submission: Sept. 15th, 2020.
