The Sanders Lecture is presented annually at a divisional meeting of the APA on a topic in philosophy of mind, metaphysics, or epistemology that engages the analytic tradition.
The Sanders Lecturer is selected by a committee appointed by the chair of the APA’s committee on lectures, publications, and research, in consultation with LPR committee members. Eligibility for this prize is limited to APA members.
Members of the selection committee will normally be members of the LPR although additional members may be selected based on their expertise in the fields of philosophy of mind, analytic metaphysics, and/or analytic epistemology. Membership on the Sanders Lecture selection committee will rotate so that no single person serves for longer than two years. The selection of the lecturer must be ratified by the entire LPR.
Amount: $3,500 plus travel costs not to exceed $1,500.
The annual Sanders Lecture was established in 2013 to honor a distinguished scholar in philosophy of mind, metaphysics, or epistemology who engages the analytic tradition. It is generously funded by the Marc Sanders Foundation.
