The Philosophy and Religion Society of Thailand and the Philosophical Association of the Philippines are collaborating to publish a book volume entitled “Love and Friendship Across Cultures” to be published by Springer. The book volume contains some of the papers that were presented during the First Joint Meeting of the two associations in July 2019. However, we plan to include more papers through this general call for chapters too.
Papers can be submitted for consideration of inclusion in the book provided that they deal with love and friendship in a cross-cultural dimension in one way or another. Chapters that deal with love and frienship (or only one of the two) from an Asian or from a religious perspective (Buddhist, Christian, Islamic, and so on), or those that focus on comparative aspects (for example, between Buddhist and Greek traditions, and so on) are particularly welcome. Papers need to be philosophically rigorous and meet the standard of internationally accepted scholarship.
Papers should be between 5,000 to 8,000 words and please follow the APA citation format. Please also submit an abstract of 200 words together with the paper. Deadline for submitting the paper is December 31, 2019. Please send the paper to me at firstname.lastname@example.org and in the email please put the phrase “[Book Project – Love]” in the subject heading so that I can easily distinguish your submission from all other mails. Only papers in .doc, .docx, or .odt format are allowed.
