APA Awards 2017 Routledge, Taylor & Francis Prize
The American Philosophical Association (APA) has announced the winners of the 2017 Routledge, Taylor & Francis Prize. The prize is awarded for the two best published articles in philosophy written by adjunct or limited-term professors.
The winners are:
- Michael Milona (Cornell) for his “Taking the Perceptual Analogy Seriously” in Ethical Theory and Moral Practice
- Ian Stoner (University of Minnesota) for his “Ways To Be Worse Off” in Res Philosophica.
The prize is sponsored by the Routledge, Taylor & Francis Group and includes a $1,000 monetary award for each winner.
According to a press release from the APA, the chair of the prize selection committee says:
Milona’s ‘Taking the Perceptual Analogy Seriously’ defends a version of sentimental perceptualism. He creatively exploits the same analogies between the role of perceptions in empirical judgment and the role of emotions in evaluative judgment used by opponents of sentimental perceptualism in defense of it.
Stoner develops a distinction between two ways of being worse off that can help answer the question of whether disability adversely affects well-being. His article offers an accessible discussion of a socially important topic and suggests a solution to the mere difference/bad difference debate that does not require offering necessary and sufficient conditions for disability.
