About OtherWise

OtherWise: A Journal of Student Philosophy, an official publication of the Philosophy Student Association at Kennesaw State University, is dedicated to comparative philosophy and aims to serve as a bridge between various philosophical traditions and philosophers. Submissions are welcomed from student philosophers from all philosophical persuasions with preference given to those of comparative and Continental orientations. The Journal is dedicated to publishing quality articles and book reviews in comparative studies of the Asian philosophical traditions (Indian, Chinese, Japanese, and Korean), Buddhist philosophy, African philosophy, and Islamic philosophy.

OtherWise: A Journal of Student Philosophy is made possible by a private grant and is produced by the Philosophy Student Association at Kennesaw State University.

Call for Papers for the 2012 Issue:

OtherWise: A Journal of Student Philosophy is seeking paper submissions for its next issue.  Undergraduate and graduate submissions dealing with any philosophical topic are welcome.  Although all submitted works are considered, please note that a preference will be given to those that focus primarily on Continental and comparative themes. Book reviews relevant to these two areas are also welcome.

Submissions:
OtherWise will consider submissions from any of the other philosophical traditions in the world, including but not limited to Western philosophy, in any philosophical disciplines such as metaphysics, epistemology, logic and philosophy of language, ethics, social and political philosophy, aesthetics, philosophy of religion, philosophy of history, and the philosophy of mind as well as articles on theories and methodologies of comparative philosophy.

All submissions to the Journal are blind-reviewed and will be reviewed by both student and professor reviewers. Normally authors may expect to hear from the editor about the suitability of their submissions for publication in the Journal within several months. The publisher holds the copyright of all articles published in the Journal.

Submissions should be sent via email to Zachary Gruca at zacharygruca@gmail.com.
