Palgrave Innovations in Philosophy is a new series of monographs. Each book in the series will constitute the 'new wave' of philosophy, both in terms of its topic and the research profile of the author. The books will be concerned with exciting new research topics of particular contemporary interest, and will include topics at the intersection of Philosophy and other research areas. They will be written by up-and-coming young philosophers who have already established a strong research profile and who are clearly going to be leading researchers of the future. Each monograph in this series will provide an overview of the research area in question while at the same time significantly advancing the debate on this topic and giving the reader a sense of where this debate might be heading next. The books in the series would be of interest to researchers and advanced students within philosophy and its neighboring scientific environments.
