Berislav Marušić Wins the 2016 Sanders Book Prize


NEWARK, Del. — Aug. 9, 2016 — The American Philosophical Association is pleased to announce that Dr. Berislav Marušić (Brandeis University) has been awarded the 2016 Sanders Book Prize for his book, Evidence and Agency: Norms of Belief for Promising and Resolving (Oxford University Press).

The annual 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.

Marušić is an associate professor in the department of philosophy at Brandeis University. His main research interests lie at the intersection of epistemology, philosophy of mind, and ethics. He is also interested in philosophy of action, the nature of reasons, the philosophy of perception, existentialism, and the history of modern philosophy. Marušić received his Ph.D. from U.C. Berkeley in 2007 and his A.B. from Harvard in 2001.
