The Edith Wharton Review invites scholars to submit essays for a special
issue, Edith Wharton and the Provocations of Philosophy. Essays should focus
on considerations of Wharton's extensive engagement with Western philosophy
and with various forms of philosophical writing; on treatments of her
writing in relation to the work of classical, French, or German philosophers
known to have been of interest to her; on her work's relationship to
pragmatism; on Wharton and the question of women and/in philosophy; or on
similar issues. A fuller acknowledgment or presentation of Wharton as an
intellectually and speculatively animated novelist will be one of the chief
objectives of this special issue.
