The Italian Society of Moral Philosophy, following its statutory act, has established Filosofia Morale/Moral Philosophy, a new scientific, digital, open access, double blind journal.

The journal aims to be a common space for research, open to the contribution of all people involved in the study of ethics, and capable of promoting a sense of belonging to the scientific community of moral philosophers.

Filosofia morale/Moral Philosophy publishes Articles, Discussions and Reviews in the field of moral philosophy and neighbor disciplines (politics, theoretical philosophy, aesthetics, philosophy of language, anthropology, religion), in a pluralistic perspective, open to the different traditions of thought and the different approaches animating the ethical debate. The journal hosts historical, theoretical, applied and interdisciplinary contributions. The contributions can be written in Italian, English, French, German, and Spanish, provided they are written or revised by a native speaker.

The selection criteria are argumentative precision, originality of the thesis, accuracy of documentation, as well as propriety and respect for every person, also in the expression of objections and critiques to authors.

The journal hosts three sections: Articles, Discussions and Reviews.


The Articles section is non-thematic: contributions are published on any topic that falls within the area of moral philosophy broadly understood. All scholars are invited to contribute.

Articles can be submitted throughout the year by uploading them anonymously in the appropriate section of the site:

Proposals are assessed on a double-blind basis. Publication takes place in the first available issue.


The Discussion section is thematic: the first issue was devoted to the theme Where is moral philosophy headed to? hosting contributions by Laura Boella, Piergiorgio Donatelli, Adriano Fabris, Luca Fonnesu, Bruno Moroncini and Paola Ricci Sindoni.


The second issue of Filosofia Morale/Moral Philosophy will be published in the autumn of 2022 and will dedicate its Discussion section to the issue of War and Peace.

The theme is proposed, on the one hand, from the perspective of the moral and political questions raised by armed conflicts, and on the other hand, from the perspective of the cultural and social conditions that support peace and the peaceful resolution of conflicts.

Interested scholars are invited to submit contributions.

Submissions should be between 20,000 and 30,000 characters in length, including spaces and bibliography. They should be uploaded anonymously to the following address:

Proposals are assessed on a double-blind basis.

The submission deadline for this section is 15 September 2022.
