The topic of the lectures shall be an important philosophical issue of current interest, with the lectures offering contrasting (not necessarily opposing) views on that topic.
In selecting the winners, the committee is encouraged to consider candidates who address important philosophical issues using diverse methodologies and perspectives and who, in so doing, are able to communicate important philosophical ideas to specialist and non-specialist audiences.
The winning submission will have the opportunity to be published in the Journal of the APA. American Philosophical Association members are eligible to nominate or self-nominate. (Although prizewinners are required to be members of the American Philosophical Association, this membership may be arranged after the winners are selected.)
The deadline for the nomination form and materials is December 1, 2020.
With this nomination form, please upload the following at the bottom of this form:
1. Two 300 word abstracts. Each abstract should be tailored to address the specific topic to be discussed as well as the approach of the speaker and should be able to speak to a general audience
2. Complete CVs for each proposed speaker
3. At least two letters of recommendation. Ideally, letter writers will have knowledge of both proposed speakers. Letters should address the stature of the candidate(s) and the relevance of the topic for current debates in philosophy. *Letters may submitted directly at: www.pbk.org/Awards/RecLetter
