Deadline extended for Lebowitz Prizes
The Phi Beta Kappa Society and the American Philosophical Association are jointly launching a new pair of annual awards that recognize and encourage outstanding achievement in philosophy. The awards are made possible by a generous bequest from Eve Lewellis Lebowitz in honor of her late husband, Martin R. Lebowitz.
The Dr. Martin R. Lebowitz and Eve Lewellis Lebowitz Prizes for Philosophical Achievement and Contribution will culminate with the Lebowitz Symposium, a pair of lectures offering contrasting views on an important philosophical issue of current interest, to be given at one of the APA’s divisional meetings each year. The prizes and symposium emphasize the historic work of philosophy as a process of inquiry. Honoraria for the speakers are funded from the endowment created by the Lebowitzes’ $1 million gift.
Eligibility for the prize is limited to APA members. Philosophers and philosophy departments wishing to make a nomination should fill out the nomination form
on the Phi Beta Kappa Society’s website by March 25, 2013. The winners will be selected by a committee appointed jointly by the Phi Beta Kappa Society and the American Philosophical Association.
