Transversal: Call for papers on Georges Canguilhem (30/01/18)

New deadline: January 30th, 2018.

Transversal: International Journal for the Historiography of Science is pleased to announce a Call for Papers dedicated to Georges Canguilhem. We are expecting to receive submissions related to Canguilhemian History of Science, and the impact it caused in the subsequent historiography. Thus comparative analysis between Canguilhem and other authors is welcomed, as well as case studies that search to evaluate the conception of scientific development advocated by the French author, exploring its current relevance and intrinsic limits.

Considering the characteristic of Canguilhem’s unity of thought, articles addressing his philosophy in relation to his epistemological project and history of science will be appreciated.

We are also expecting book reviews of Georges Canguilhem’s recent translations or reprints, as well as books about the Canguilhemian work.

In addition to English articles, Transversal: International Journal for the Historiography of Science accepts articles in French, Portuguese and Spanish for evaluation, but after approval for publication the author should send the final version in English.
