    Philosophy and the Martial Arts - Call for Papers (Book)

    I wasn't sure where to put this, so I popped in in history (the closest thing to an 'academic' forum).

    ============

    To all professional philosophers or postgraduates in philosophy,

    We invite contributions for two new book projects, involving philosophy
    and the martial arts.

    The first is a book of popular philosophy for Open Court press, part of
    the 'Philosophy and Popular Culture' series. Submissions should be
    accessible, lively and draw on martial arts to introduce readers to
    philosophical ideas, issues and debates. We urge contributors to
    familiarise themselves with the format and style of the series:
    http://www.opencourtbooks.com/categories/pcp.htm.

    The second is an edited academic monograph, comprising refereed papers.

    Contributors should submit a title and one-paragraph abstract (for one or
    both of the projects), by no later than March 31st 2007. Contributions
    can be emailed to Dr. Damon Young (youngd@unimelb.edu.au).

    For more information, please contact Damon Young or Professor Graham Priest
    (g.priest@unimelb.edu.au).

    You might want to send a pm to Lane, he was a philosophy major before he went to law school.

    When that says contact you or Graham Priest, does that, ah... mean you work with Priest? Because if so... neat. And I mean neat in the most awesome sense of the word possible.

    I would consider writing something, but I do legal writing, and it doesn't look like thats what your looking for. :(

    BTW, E-Budo would be another good place to put up an announcement.

    Yeah, we're after philosophy.

    Is philosophy hard wired into human beings? Why else do they crap up perfectly good fighting arts by imposing such a structure upon them which denies the reason for their existance?
