Subject: Call for Papers: Cultural Universals

Organization: University at Buffalo


The Monist. An International Journal of General Philosophical Inquiry

Special Issue on: Cultural Universals

Publication Date: January 1995

Deadline for submissions: Spring 1994

Advisory Editors: Tadashi Ogawa (Kyoto) and Barry Smith (SUNY Buffalo)

Debates on `multiculturalism' and related issues have rarely
given serious consideration to the question as to what extent
there are aspects of thought and action, of language and custom,
which are invariant across all cultures and societies, as recent
work in linguistics and in cultural and cognitive anthropology
seems strongly to suggest. Contributors are invited to consider
from a philosophical point of view the question of the existence
and nature of cultural universals. Contributions of a purely
systematic sort are especially welcome, but authors may choose
also to consider the issues in question also historically, for
example in light of Husserl's theory of the life world or in
relation to the common-sense philosophies of Reid, Wittgenstein
or G. E. Moore.
