Dominic McIver Lopes Wins Guggenheim / UPDATE: Gideon Yaffe Wins, Too

Dominic McIver Lopes, professor of philosophy at the University of British Columbia, has been awarded one of the 2015-16 Guggenheim Foundation fellowships. McIver Lopes works mainly in aesthetics. He is president of the American Society for Aesthetics as well as  Secretary-Treasurer of the American Philosophical Association Pacific Division. You can read more about the fellowship program and the selection process here.

UPDATE: Gideon Yaffe, professor of law, philosophy, and psychology at Yale, has also won one of the Guggenheim Foundation fellowships. Yaffe works in the philosophy of law, the study of metaphysics including causation, free will and personal identity, and the study of intention and the theory of action. (My apologies for not including this in the original post; Yaffe did not appear in my search for other philosopher-awardees, initially, as he is listed under “law.” Thanks to several readers for pointing out this omission.)
