Collingwood and British Idealism Studies

New on ejournals@cambridge A-Z : Collingwood and British Idealism Studies

From the Cardiff University website for the British Idealism and Collingwood Centre:

“The Collingwood and British Idealism Centre was established in 1994 at the University of Wales, Swansea, with the aim of promoting and encouraging research into the life and philosophy of R. G. Collingwood and moved to Cardiff University in 2000.

“The Centre produces a journal, Collingwood and British Idealism Studies edited by Andrew Vincent, David Boucher & Bruce Haddock, publishes books, provides physical and intellectual support, houses copies of manuscripts from a range of British Idealists, printed books and over 120 Ph.D. theses from all over the world, and organises conferences for which we have had support from the British Academy and AHRC.

“The Centre encourages research and study focused on the corpus of the British Idealists’ writings in relation to themes which are associated with broader issues in the areas of politics, ethics, social and political philosophy, history of ideas, British and Continental political thought, sociology, and social policy. There is no restriction on the methodological and interpretative approaches employed and new innovative interdisciplinary projects of re-assessment, critical examination, and reconstruction of the British Idealists’ philosophy are encouraged. The Collingwood and British Idealism Centre has four main foci, which act as the objectives to be pursued: the moral social and political philosophy of Idealism; society and the individual; varying international perspectives on Idealism and the diverse and powerful influence of Idealism.”

Now available to the University of Cambridge electronically from volume 11 (2005) to present.

From the T&F website for the journal:

“The purpose of the journal is to foster scholarship in the area of political theology. Political Theology investigates the connections between religious and political ideas and practices.

It reflects the diversity of religious and theological engagements with public and political life. The aims of the journal are to:

  • Examine the explicit or implicit religious background to political movements, ideas, and practices
  • Examine the political implications of religious movements, ideas, and practices
  • Interrogate the way power operates at the intersection of religion and politics
  • Reflect on the tradition of political theology in a global context, including voices from marginalized communities and a variety of religious traditions.
  • Provide a bridge between discussions of political theology in different academic disciplines”

From the PDC website for the journal:

Process Studies is a peer-reviewed journal that may be defined as referring primarily, although not exclusively, to the philosophy of Alfred North Whitehead and his intellectual associates, most notably Charles Hartshorne. With this focus, Process Studies seeks to explore process thought more broadly as it appears in related philosophies and theologies and to apply the Whiteheadian conceptuality to other fields, such as aesthetics, biology, cosmology, economics, ethics, history of religions, literary criticism, mathematics, political thought, psychology, physics, social science and sociology. The journal is published by the Center for Process Studies.”

Now available to the University of Cambridge electronically from volume 1 (1971) to present.
