Louise Antony wins APA Prize November 4, 2012

Filed under: Uncategorized — jennysaul @ 11:03 am

Feminist philosopher Louise Antony has won the the APA Committee on Public Philosophy’s Op-Ed Contest for the best op-eds published by philosophers in 2011!

Here’s what they said:
“The goal of the contest is to honor 5 standout pieces that blend successfully
philosophical argumentation with an Op-Ed writing style. A committee of
four philosophers from the APA committee on public philosophy judged 23
submissions. Your op-ed, “Goodness Minus God,” calls public attention to the
value of philosophical thinking. It is accessible to the general public. It is also
concerned with important topics of public concern and characterized by sound
reasoning. These were the contests’ four criteria for selection, on which grounds your piece was
selected.”

Update: Here’s the article. (Whoops!)

    I’m confused. Five pieces? Is she one of five winners, or did she win for five articles?
