Call for Papers
For the next issue of Appraisal, the online, open access journal of the British Personalist Forum, papers should focus upon applying personalism rather than being merely about personalisms and personalists, unless the chosen personalists make significant additions personalism. The deadline for submissions is February 1, 2024. Please send manuscripts in accordance with Appraisal’s house style to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The current issue is Vol. 13, No. 1, Spring 2023 and begins with three full papers from our very successful Zoom Conference in November 2022. Diana Prokofyeva from St Petersburg argues that Higher Education today is too much regarded as something to be ‘consumed’ while Henrieta Serban from Bucharest traces connections between neo-pragmatism and Personalism and, finally, Richard Prust from North Carolina, gives us the ‘Introduction’ to his forthcoming book, Personal Meaning: How We Give Relational Significance, Relative Importance, Emotional Force and Moral Value to Our Action. Then, to complete the issue, there are reviews of three books of a personalist tenour: Henerieta Serban’s bilingual Neopragmatism and Postliberalism: A Contemporary Weltanschauung, Giorgio Baruchello’s and Ársæll Már Arnarsson’s Humour and Cruelty Volume 1: A Philosophical Exploration of the Humanities and Social Sciences, and Juan Burgos’ Intoducción al Personalismo.
