Author a Chapter

What Are We Looking For?

We are seeking faculty or PhD students (ABD) interested in authoring a chapter

Overview

We are seeking chapter contributions of roughly 3000 words on a range of topics for the Introduction to Philosophy Open Textbook, ed. by Christina Hendricks and the Rebus Community. The chapters should be aimed at first-year undergraduates, and will form part of a larger open-source textbook on philosophy to be used by university teachers and students.

We are currently looking for authors for chapters in the following parts (list of chapters in each part available in the Public TOC):

  • Metaphysics

  • Social and Political Philosophy

  • Aesthetics

  • Philosophy of Mind

  • Philosophy of Religion

  • Epistemology

    If you would like to write about a part that is not listed, we can discuss the possibility of additions.

We are looking for people with a PhD in philosophy, ideally with teaching experience at the first-year level. PhD students in philosophy may also be considered as authors, or can contribute in other ways to the book. We encourage interest and contributions from members of underrepresented groups within the philosophical community.
