The Senior Scholar Prize is awarded annually for an outstanding article or book dealing with any aspect of Kant’s philosophy and published in the two years preceding ("online first" publication counts). The Prize is on a two-year cycle, with articles and books accepted in alternating years. We invite ARTICLE nominations for the 2021 Senior Scholar Prize until January 31, 2022. We invite BOOK nominations for the 2022 Senior Scholar Prize until January 31, 2023. And so on.
Note that for the 2022 prize only, we will consider books published in the preceding THREE years, rather than two. This is a result of the switch to making it an alternating prize. So any book published in 2020, 2021, or 2022 is eligible for that competition.
Submissions are judged by a panel consisting of members drawn from the NAKS Advisory Board, and the winner will receive a prize of $500. Calls for submissions and more details will be issued in the newsletter. The Awards Committee reserves the right not to award a prize, if in its judgment no prize is warranted.Eligibility rules:
• For the Book Prize, submission must be made by the publisher, and four (4) copies of the book must be submitted to NAKS.
• Current NAKS Executive and/or Advisory Board Members are not eligible to compete for the prize.
