Sanders Book Prize
Share |

Summary

The Sanders Book Prize in the amount of $7,000 is awarded to the best book in philosophy of mind, metaphysics, or epistemology that engages the analytic tradition published in English in the previous five-year period. This prize is funded through the generosity of the Marc Sanders Foundation.

Award

Frequency: Annual

Nomination deadline: January 31, 2017

Award Amount: $7,000

Nomination Process

The Sanders Book Prize will be awarded to the best book in philosophy of mind, metaphysics, or epistemology that engages the analytic tradition published in English in the previous five-year period. For the 2017 prize, eligible books must bear a copyright imprint of 2012 through 2016. All nominated authors must be members of the APA. (If a book is co-authored, both authors must be APA members.)

To be considered for the prize, a book must be nominated by a member of the APA other than the author. A member may nominate only one book. Nominations need only identify the author, title, publisher, and publication date. The APA will contact nominated authors for assurances of eligibility and to secure copies of the nominated books.

Specific books falling within the five-year period can at most be considered twice, i.e. if a book fails to win in any one year and is still eligible in later years, it can only be considered one more time during the period in which it would be eligible.

Questions may be directed to [email protected].

Only members may submit nominations; please sign in to access the nomination form.

To submit a nomination, fill out the nomination form.

Selection Process

The winner will be selected by a three to five person committee appointed by the chair of the committee on lectures, publications, and research, in consultation with LPR committee members. The chair of the Sanders Book Prize subcommittee is a member of the LPR.

The winner of the award will receive $7,000 and be presented with the award at the Eastern Division meeting of the association. Co-authors of a winning submission will share equally in the prize.
