Philosophy and Poverty

Series Editors: Hahn, Henning, Schweiger, Gottfried, Sedmak, Clemens

ISSN: 2662-4389

This series provides a forum for the whole range of philosophical research on poverty and poverty alleviation, broadly construed. Whereas most existing research focuses on global, absolute poverty, and most existing literature falls within the post-Rawlsian liberal camp of political philosophy, this series is not restricted to one specific understanding of poverty, nor does it follow any single philosophical approach. “Philosophy and Poverty” broadens the philosophical discourse on poverty by including the disciplines of philosophy of science, epistemology and history of philosophy. 

The series includes high quality and thoroughly edited and peer reviewed research monographs. Both systematic and historical approaches are included in volumes on such diverse topics as global and social justice and poverty; the conceptualisation of poverty; ethical issues in poverty alleviation; philosophical interrogations of poverty policies, social services and development aid; poverty in the history of philosophy; the philosophy of “poverty science” and research; issues of intersectionality and the relation of poverty to gender, age, race and disability; and feminist, critical, radical and postcolonial perspectives on poverty, poverty research and alleviation. Volumes in the series are of interest to scholars working in philosophy, poverty research and development studies, as well as social policy experts.
