*Consciousness in Medieval and Early Modern Philosophy of Mind*



Invited editors: Martin Klein, Naomi Osorio-Kupferblum, Oliver Istvan Toth



In recent years, the relationship between Medieval and Early Modern
philosophy has received greater attention. Scholars have characterized this
relationship both as a continuity and as a break. This is certainly true of
philosophy of mind, where many Aristotelian assumptions and questions
persisted, while the framework of substantial forms and their inherent
powers was questioned. Also, in both Medieval and Early Modern history of
philosophy the notion of consciousness has been the topic of new research:
different scholars have tried to investigate the question how our
contemporary concern with consciousness maps onto Medieval and Early Modern
philosophy, as well as what implications medieval and early modern
positions in philosophy of mind and epistemology have for possible views on
consciousness. While some scholars point to similarities, others have
warned that it is not clear whether the problem of consciousness even
existed for some of the authors in these periods.



For this special issue of Society and Politics we therefore invite papers
discussing one of the followings topics:
- Consciousness in Medieval philosophy
- Consciousness in Early Modern philosophy
- The influence of Medieval on Early Modern discussions of and debates on
consciousness
- Influence and/or relevance of Medieval and/or Early Modern discussions of
and debates on consciousness for the contemporary philosophy of mind
- Methodology of research on Medieval and/or Early Modern discussions of
and debates on consciousness
- Historiography of Medieval and/or Early Modern discussions of and debates
on consciousness



Papers no longer than 8000 words, or book reviews no longer than 800 words,
should be submitted to consciousnesscentralkolleg2017 at gmail.com by March
