An upcoming Special Issue of Religions will focus on God and ethics, a topic of importance in light of the recent resurgence of interest in this branch of natural and philosophical theology, the philosophy of religion, and religious epistemology. We are pleased to invite you to consider submitting a proposal for this volume.
Suggested themes include whether or not the evidence furnished by various aspects of ethics points in the direction of God, and, if so, in what fashion. This examination may include discussion of obstacles in the way of theistic ethics or challenges in making best sense of ethics apart from theism. The nature of the moral evidence adduced might cover (but is not limited to) intrinsic human value, binding moral obligations, moral knowledge, moral transformation, the category of evil, issues associated with reconciling moral reasoning and prudential reasoning, and the historical discussion of moral atheology or the moral argument. Matters of the roles of reason and emotion in moral epistemology, the nature of potential dependence relations of morality on God, and what a sufficiently robust moral theology looks like are all topics for investigation rife with potential. The aim is to have a collection of at least ten articles. Original research articles and reviews are welcome.
I look forward to seeing your proposals.
Prof. Dr. David Baggett
