Call for papers: "Thomas Aquinas' Theory of Conscience and Contemporary Debates on Conscientious Objection"


The Editor of Diametros – An Online Journal of Philosophy invites papers on Thomas Aquinas' theory of conscience until 15th June 2015. In particular, articles are welcome that feature such aspects of the theory as its admission of the possibility of erroneous judgments of conscience and its relation to recent controversies concerning conscientious refusals by health care professionals to take part in certain ethically contested medical procedures (“conscience clauses”). Other aspects of Aquinas’ theory of conscience, which merit an in-depth discussion, can also be dealt with. Authors interested to contribute to this edition of Diametros, planned for publication in September 2015, are kindly requested to submit their proposals for double-blind peer review through the online platform of the journal:
