Book Reviews

Book reviews should be written to be informative concerning the subject and main features of the work, and to locate it within present debates of interest to philosophical study. An overall recommendation as to the quality and usefulness of the book in question may be appropriate. They are not peer-reviewed, but are subject to editorial scrutiny and must conform to the quality standards of Praxis. Although calls for book reviews are sent out at the same time as  calls for original papers, reviews of books will be considered for publication at any time. Please submit an email with a short CV, mentioning the book you would like to review and why you think it should be reviewed. You may either review one of the available books, or suggest a book. Reviews should be between 500 and 1500 words.
