The topic
Philosophers of art are currently looking deeper into artforms and art-related practices that have so far raised only limited debate – for instance: site-specific art, installation art, artwork restoration, culinary art, fashion as art, conceptual art, architecture, photography and videography. The aim of the volume is to collect original, well-argued contributions exploring new directions in the philosophy of art. We welcome papers discussing under-researched artforms or art-related practices and focusing on issues concerning, for instance, artwork metaphysics, artwork ontology, artwork phenomenology, aesthetic appreciation, artistic value, artistic content, authorial intentions, art media, art genres, or artistic style.

The journal
Philosophical Inquiries is a double-blind peer-reviewed scholarly journal. Its aim is to cover a wide range of philosophical questions of broad interest and belonging to diverse fields, such as epistemology, ethics, metaphysics, aesthetics, philosophy of mind, philosophy of science and philosophy of law. The submission system is a strict double-blind peer-review process. The journal is indexed in the Philosopher’s Index and classified as a fascia A publication by ANVUR.
