Jahrbuch Praktische Philosophie in globaler Perspektive

The Yearbook Practical Philosophy in Global Perspective is a forum for works from the fields of political philosophy, moral philosophy, social philosophy, and philosophy of law, as well as from neighboring disciplines (sociology, psychology, cultural studies, political science, environmental studies, economics, and law) that deal decidedly with global issues or follow on from corresponding problems. The yearbook consists of a general contribution section, in which fundamental work on this topic area is published, and a focus section, which is placed under a new topic each year. This theme is also dealt with in the respective symposia of the research and study project of the Rottendorf Foundation at the Munich School of Philosophy. This project has been dedicated to a philosophically oriented reflection on global issues for over thirty years. Each yearbook also contains an interview with leading representatives of the field, based on the main topic.
