Free trial: Encyclopedia of the Mind

It’s hard to conceive of a topic of more broad and personal interest than the study of the mind. In addition to its traditional investigation by the disciplines of psychology, psychiatry, and neuroscience, the mind has also been a focus of study in the fields of philosophy, economics, anthropology, linguistics, computer science, molecular biology, education, and literature. In all these approaches, there is an almost universal fascination with how the mind works and how it affects our lives and our behavior. Studies of the mind and brain have crossed many exciting thresholds in recent years, and the study of mind now represents a thoroughly cross-disciplinary effort. Researchers from a wide range of disciplines seek answers to such questions as: What is mind? How does it operate? What is consciousness?The Encyclopedia of the Mind brings together scholars from the entire range of mind-related academic disciplines from across the arts and humanities, social sciences, life sciences, and computer science and engineering to explore the multidimensional nature of the human mind.

American Dialectic

American Dialectic is an online journal committed to enriching scholarly publication, discourse, and intellectual development in Philosophy and related fields.  As an organization, American Dialectic is devoted to publishing intellectually excellent articles and to promoting the dialectical development of ideas among a broad community of readers.  This is accomplished by combining the best aspects of a traditional publication with the best aspects of a scholarly conference: lead articles are published on their website and then are followed throughout the publication cycle by edited responses that are written and submitted by their readers.

The publications will offer perspectives on the history of philosophy and its inveterate fields while at the same time keeping a mindful eye on important inquiries and novel explorations.  With this in mind, their editing staff will actively seek out those articles that present strong philosophic material that is conducive to the developmental format of American Dialectic.

Rifl: Rivista Italiana di Filosofia del Linguaggio

This journal accepts and publishes articles regarding theoretical and empirical research in the fields of Philosophy of Language, Semiotics, and Psychology. In particular, the aim of the journal is to counter the idea that philosophical reflection is a disciplinary and specialist sector. On the contrary, the RIFL research group strongly believes that philosophy plays an important role in our contemporary society, that is the ability to communicate with a non-specialist audience about the problems of our time, without ever renouncing to the critical standpoint and clarity which is typical of philosophical thinking.

RIFL will focus on issues related to the fields of Philosophy of Language, Semiotics, and Psychology, with an interdisciplinary approach to studying the issues. For this reason, RIFL invites and accepts contributions from the different research traditions, provided that they are consistent with the approach of the journal.

It is available free of charge as an Open Access journal on the Internet. Please click here to access.
