Call for Abstracts
Yoga & Philosophy: Stretch Your Mind
Liz Stillwaggon Swan (ed.)
Abstracts are sought for a prospective title in the Wiley-Blackwell series Philosophy for Everyone, under the general editorship of Fritz Allhoff. As with other titles in this Series—Climbing & Philosophy, Wine & Philosophy, Running & Philosophy—Yoga & Philosophy will unite the insights of philosophers, interdisciplinary academics (psychologists, religious studies scholars), and practicing yoginis and yogis. The abstracts and resulting selected papers should be written for an educated but non-specialized audience. The scope of this volume includes all aspects of yoga: physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual. Thus, essays may address, for example: analyses of the 8 Limbs of Yoga, stories of personal insight and personal transformation from the practice of yoga, accounts of the mind-body relationship in yoga (versus outside of yoga), explication of the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, comparative explorations of Eastern and Western approaches to yoga, yoga’s ancient history in India, and/or yoga’s recent history in the US, etc.
