Shibboleth: 1. A word or pronunciation that distinguishes people of one group or class from those of another.  2a. A word or phrase identified with a particular group or cause; a catchword.  2b. A commonplace saying or idea; even a cliché, outworn dogma.  3. A custom or practice that betrays one as an outsider.  (Answers.Com)

Issues 4.1 and 4.2 are forthcoming!

SHIBBOLETHS is an open access, peer-reviewed journal devoted to exploring all aspects of Philosophy and Theory

We welcome submissions that seek to

  • trace the history of these fields (including discussions of particular philosophers or theorists, specific phases and periods, and schools of thought),

  • explore their development in particular socio-cultural contexts (e.g. African as opposed to Asian thought), and

  • examine particular topics, problems or issues of interest to philosophers and theorists (in areas such as the arts, communication, education, geography, history, knowledge, metaphysics, the mind, body and self, morality, politics and the law, race, reasoning, religion, the natural sciences, sexuality, society and culture and, last but not least, the nature of philosophy and theory themselves). 

As the very name 'Shibboleths' implies, we are particularly interested in studies which adopt a comparative approach and / or seek to interrogate theoretical commonplaces and orthodoxies.  Our approach is pluralist: we are open to a variety of points of view and strive to privilege none.

Though not exclusively Caribbean in focus, attempts to theorise the Caribbean, theories by Caribbean thinkers, and efforts to situate Caribbean thought within a wider socio-historical and intellectual context inevitably form an important part of what we do, given the roots of many of us involved in this project, and are particularly welcome. 

All the essays are stored in PDF format. To download, read and / or print them, you will need Adobe Acrobat Reader, preferably the latest version.
