Danish Yearbook of Philosophy invites submissions to a special theme that will review trends in the current philosophical discussions and theories of the emotions, with special focus on social aspects and embodiment.

Among cognitive scientists, there is currently an increased focus on the social conditioning of psychological states in general, emotions in particular, that have formerly been explained in relation to individual psychology and cognition. To a certain extent, one may argue that a mixture or merge between the cognitive science of the individual and the psychology of groups forms a first step towards a novel intermediate scientific paradigm that either combines naturalism and social constructivism, or implies a rejection of both.

Hence, much contemporary philosophical research incorporates insights from various sciences on the social conditions and embodiment of subjectivity and emotions originates in research made within various sciences from cognitive science and psychology, over microbiology, medicine and sociology, to phenomenology and aesthetics. This special theme aims at integrating the state of the art of these sciences into the philosophical discussion of the emotions, attending to assess the philosophical implications of some of the many recent discoveries in these sciences.

Furthermore, the issue may also contain discussions of how philosophical debates may influence research in this area, whether related to issues in philosophy of science, methodology or interpretation of results, particularly related to subjectivity and emotions.

Following the annual meeting of the Danish Philosophical Society in Vejle 2019, the issue will contain contributions from some of the contributors at the conference, including Dan Zahavi and Achim Stephan.
