The Humanities Open Book Program of Fordham University Press

Digitization and production of 21 freely accessible ebooks initially published by Fordham University Press, with an emphasis on American philosophy.

Fordham University Press (the Press) seeks support to make twenty-one significant books on American philosophy more accessibly available through Open Access models, via institutional digital platforms, and in print formats by way of manufacturing on-demand technology. The Press has published more than 3,000 scholarly books since its founding in 1907 and has long been recognized as a leading American publisher of philosophy scholarship. As such, we seek funding from the Humanities Open Book Program to revitalize and promote a selection of “lost” titles from our American Philosophy series. The twenty-one titles proposed for digitization represent those studies that have stood the test of time but that were released before digital publishing technology had fully matured. With the addition of these twenty-one, the Press’s complete catalog in American Philosophy will be available in high-quality, digital-native publications for the use of scholars into the foreseeable future.
