Southern Journal of Philosophy Relaunched

The Southern Journal of Philosophy has relaunched with a new publishing agreement with Wiley, a new webpage and a new editorial board (including me). As the webpage indicates
The Southern Journal of Philosophy has long provided a forum for the expression of philosophical ideas and welcomes articles written from all philosophical perspectives, including both the analytic and continental traditions, as well as the history of philosophy. This commitment to philosophical pluralism is reflected in the long list of notable figures whose work has appeared in the journal, including Hans-Georg Gadamer, Hubert Dreyfus, George Santayana, Wilfrid Sellars, and Richard Sorabji.

The jewel of each volume is the Spindel Supplement, which features the invited papers and commentaries presented at the annual Spindel Conference. Held each autumn at the University of Memphis and endowed by a generous gift from the Spindel family, each Spindel Conference centers on a philosophical topic of broad interest and provides a venue for discussion by the world's leading figures on that topic.
I hope the philosophers will take advantage of this special venue for pursuing new and exciting directions for research in philosophy.
