Call for papers: Simulatio - Issue 11 (2023) special section

Edited by Fabio Ciracì (Università del Salento), Cristina Marras (CNR-ILIESI)


New deadline for submitting papers: 30 November 2023


The Issue 11 of 2023 of Lexicon Philosophicum: International Journal for the History of Texts and Ideas will publish a Special Section edited by Fabio Ciracì (Università del Salento) and Cristina Marras (CNR-ILIESI) aiming at charting the intricate lexical and semantic field that originates from and surrounds the term simulatio (including, e.g., simulacrum, dissimulatio).

We are interested in its usages, associations, and meanings, as well as those of connected terms and concepts, that arose in the early modern reception of ancient debates—in particular in rhetorics and in the fields of epistemology and physics—and in the transformations, extensions, and innovations that modernity brought about in these domains. Special attention is devoted to our contemporaneity and to tracking the use of these terms in interdisciplinary domains, also considering the impact of technologies.

We strongly invite submissions from scholars in the history of ideas and conceptual history, and in the history of scientific thought, as well as scholars engaged with the development of learned terminology.

Contributions can be in the form of critical essays, research articles, editions of short texts, and critical bibliographic reviews.
