There is a famous parable that goes something like this: When six blind people came across an elephant, they were curious to know more about it. Since they would not be able to see it, they decided to touch and feel it anyway. "Hey, the elephant feels like a tree trunk” said the person who touched his leg. "Oh, no! it is like a rope," said the second one who touched the tail. "Oh, no! it is like a thick branch of a tree," said the one who touched the trunk of the elephant. "It is like a big hand fan" said the fourth person who touched the ear of the elephant. "It is like a huge wall," said the fifth person who touched the belly of the elephant. "It is like a solid pipe," said the sixth person who touched the tusk of the elephant.
What Future for the Philosophy of Religion?
Editor: Dr Russell Re Manning (Bath Spa University, UK)
We are inviting papers for publication in this special issue of Palgrave Communications, published by Palgrave Macmillan (https://www.nature.com/palcomms).
We are living through an exciting time for the philosophy of religion: a time of crisis. There is, it seems, widespread discontent within the discipline about its current state and future directions – indeed about whether it even has a future whatsoever.

Spaced Out. Spatiality in Comics
Space does for comics what time does for film.
How is space thematised and transformed, strengthened or weakened in the narrative comic? To what extent do comics rewrite and reinvent space by offering a place where spatial coordinates can be reconfigured in a utopian or fantastic manner? How does this reconfiguration affect perception devices? And again, how can the representation of spatiality in comics be modified within the network of the ongoing transmedia transformations?
Critical studies on men and masculinities is a developing and interdisciplinary field of inquiry, flourished in association with the feminist and LGBTQ studies since its establishment in the 1980’s by the substantial efforts of authors such as Raewyn Connell, Michael Kimmel, Jeff Hearn, Victor Seidler and David Morgan among many others. This field is now elaborating and promoting its own issues and agendas. Masculinities: A Journal of Identity and Culture, an internationally refereed journal which is published biannually in February and August by Initiative for Critical Studies of Masculinities (ICSM), is a part of these efforts.
