The Canadian Philosophical Association 2013 Biennial Book Prize
In philosophy, books are one of the most important means for communicating the results of research; quite often, they represent the culmination of a significant achievement in the course of a philosophical investigation. The Canadian philosophical community is an important contributor, in both English and French, of high quality philosophical research with an international reputation that shows the remarkable dynamism of philosophical life in Canada.
The Canadian Philosophical Association wishes to have these contributions better known and, to this end, has instituted a book prize.
A Description of the Prize
The Canadian Philosophical Association will award a maximum of three prizes for the best books in philosophy published by members of the Association. The amount of the prizes is determined by available resources. The sponsors of the 2013 Prize are the Cambridge University Press and Les Presses de l'Université de Montréal.
For a book to be eligible for a prize, it must make a significant contribution to philosophical research.
Text-books, collections of articles by several authors, conference proceedings and translations, except if they are critical editions, are not eligible for a prize. If there is a question about the eligibility of a book, the Selection Committee will have the final say in the matter.
The author of the book must be a member in good standing of the Canadian Philosophical Association at the time of submission and in the year of the Prize.
2013 Book Prize:
The book must be published in English or French between October 1, 2010 and October 1, 2012.
Date of Submission
The book must be submitted to the Executive Director of the Canadian Philosophical Association before October 31, 2012.
Also, three copies of any information that can help the committee in reaching its decision, such as book reviews, critical notices, etc. should be included.
Three copies of the book and other relevant documents should be sent to the Executive Director of the Canadian Philosophical Association, Saint Paul University, 223 Main Street, Ottawa ON K1S 1C4. The Selection Committee might require two additional copies of the book if it decides to send the book for external refereeing.
