Positive feelings on the border between phenomenology, psychology and virtue ethics

Edited by Guccinelli Roberta; Iocco Gemmo

Deadline: Jul 31st 2020

One of the liveliest topics of research in contemporary philosophy is the study of negative emotions— the  so-called  ombres  de  l’âme  (Tappolet,  Teroni,  Konzelmann  Ziv,  Bilgrami,  Nussbaum,  Salice,  Montes Sánchez)—and  of  pathological  or  abnormal  affective  experiences  (Ratcliffe,  Colombetti,  Bayne  and Fernàndez)

Publication policies


Metodo publishes two regular issues per year, each devoted to a specific topic and edited by two editors. We welcome proposals by external scholars to officiate as editors of a thematic issue.


Metodo accepts articles both of a systematic in nature and of a more historical character – provided they offer a relevant contribution to current debates concerning the issues' topic.

We publish articles in English, German, Spanish, French, and Italian.
