    • Abstract:
      Within psychology, epistemology is treated by many scholars explicitly or implicitly as a default first principle. Within this special section, this positioning is brought into question. Contributors consider broadening the philosophical foundations of our discipline to also overtly include ethical, existential, and cosmological concerns alongside epistemology considerations. We present five articles that each showcase very different approaches in the reimagining of the philosophical principles of psychology. Although different in many ways, these contributions also share key similarities in advocating for the more meaningful inclusion of ethics within broader processes of knowledge production and implementation.
