Reason Papers 36.1 (July 2014) is now up on our Archives page.
If you’ve recently sent us a query–there’s a long but gradually diminishing line of you–apologies for our delay in getting back to you, but we’re still quite swamped and gradually moving through the queue (and editing the next issue), and will get back to you as soon as we can.
Though we had (as per the editorial in RP 36.1) planned to publish RP 36.2 in December 2014, and RP 37.1 in February 2015, given how swamped we are, we’ve decided to cancel RP 36.2 and simply publish RP 37.1 in February 2015, proceeding from that point forward with a twice-a-year publication schedule (February and September).
Here’s some (not all) of the material forthcoming in the February 2015 issue:
- Symposium on Christine Vitrano’s The Nature and Value of Happiness: Contributions by John Kleinig and Christopher Rice, with a response by Christine Vitrano.
- Symposium on the Epistemology, Ethics, and Politics of Emergencies: Contributions by Roger Bissell, William Dale, Stephen Kershnar, Irfan Khawaja, and Thomas May.
- Articles: Marc Champagne on rational choice; Stephen Kershnar on fetuses as rapists; Clifton Perry on the scope of attorney confidentiality; Gary Jason on portrayals of egoism in classic cinema; and more.
- Discussion Notes: David Kelley and Irfan Khawaja respond to Ole Martin Moen’s “Is Life the Ultimate Value?”; Mark Friedman responds to Danny Frederick’s review of Nozick’s Libertarian Project, with a rejoinder by Frederick.
- Reviews: Danny Frederick on Robert Audi’s Moral Perception; Gary Jason on …and the Pursuit of Happiness: Wellbeing and the Role of Government; Dan Swain on Paul Blackledge’s Marxism and Ethics: Freedom, Desire, and Revolution; Irfan Khawaja on Neil J. Kressel’s The Sons of Pigs and Apes: Muslim Antisemitism and the Conspiracy of Silence; and more.
- Afterwords: Irfan Khawaja on “the aesthetic train wreck” of Atlas Shrugged, Part 3; and more.
We’ll announce more forthcoming material as we get it ready. Authors should expect to receive edited versions of their manuscripts within the next few weeks.
