The APA invites nominations for the inaugural Ernest Sosa Prize Lecture. The winner of the prize must be an outstanding contributor to epistemology, and will present the Ernest Sosa Prize Lecture at an APA divisional meeting, in which the prize winner expounds some substantial contribution in a way that is accessible to a broad philosophical audience.

In addition to a $1,500 prize, the winner will receive a selection of Ernest Sosa's major book-length contributions in epistemology. This selection will include one paperback copy of each of the following six Wiley Blackwell titles:

  • Contemporary Epistemology: An Anthology
  • Epistemology: An Anthology, 2nd Edition
  • A Companion to Epistemology, 2nd Edition
  • The Blackwell Guide to Epistemology
  • Contemporary Debates in Epistemology
  • Ernest Sosa and His Critics

The nomination deadline is October 15, 2019.

Any APA member may nominate any other APA member for the Ernest Sosa Prize Lecture; self-nominations are not permitted. Nominations must include a brief statement of support from the nominator. To submit a nomination, fill out the Ernest Sosa Prize Lecture Nomination Form.

We look forward to receiving your nominations.
