Sosa and Stich Win Lebowitz Prizes for Philosophical Achievement


Ernest Sosa and Stephen Stich, both professors of philosophy at Rutgers University, have been awarded the 2016 Dr. Martin R. Lebowitz and Eve Lewellis Lebowitz Prizes for Philosophical Achievement and Contribution.

The prizes—$26,500 to each winner—are awarded by the Phi Beta Kappa Society and the American Philosophical Association (APA). They go to two philosophers who hold “contrasting (not necessarily opposing ) views” on a topic of current philosophical interest, and who will present their views at the Lebowitz Symposium at the APA’s Pacific Division meeting next April. The topic this time around is the role of intuitions in philosophical methodology.

You can read more about the award in a press release from the APA.
