Logic, Argumentation & Reasoning
Interdisciplinary Perspectives from the Humanities and Social Sciences
Logic, Argumentation & Reasoning (LAR) explores links between the Humanities and Social Sciences, with theories (including decision and action theory) drawn from the cognitive sciences, economics, sociology, law, logic, and the philosophy of science.
Its main ambitions are to develop a theoretical framework that will encourage and enable interaction between disciplines, and to integrate the Humanities and Social Sciences around their main contributions to public life,using informed debate, lucid decision-making, and action based on reflection.
● Argumentation models and studies
● Communication, language and techniques of argumentation
● Reception of arguments, persuasion and the impact of power
● Diachronic transformations of argumentative practices
LAR is developed in partnership with the Maison Européenne des Sciences de l’Homme et de la Société (MESHS) at Nord - Pas de Calais and the UMR-STL: 8163 (CNRS).
Proposals should include :
● A short synopsis of the work, or the introduction chapter
● The proposed Table of Contents
● The CV of the lead author(s)
● If available: one sample chapter
We aim to make a first decision within 1 month of submission. In case of a positive first decision, the work will be provisionally contracted—the final decision about publication will depend upon the result of an anonymous peer review of the complete manuscript.
The complete work is usually peer-reviewed within 3 months of submission.
LAR discourages the submission of manuscripts containing reprints of previously published material, and/or manuscripts that are less than 150 pages / 85,000 words.For inquiries and proposal submissions, authors may contact the editor-in-chief, Shahid Rahman at: firstname.lastname@example.org, or the managing editor, Juan Redmond, at: email@example.com
