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.
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.
For the 2019 prize, the book must have been published in English or French between October 1, 2016 and October 1, 2018.
The author of the book must be a member in good standing of the Canadian Philosophical Association for 2019 before the deadline of November 7, 2018.
Date of Submission
The book must be submitted to the Executive Director of the Canadian Philosophical Association before before November 7, 2018. Print and digital editions are accepted. Two copies of any information that can help the committee in reaching its decision, such as book reviews, critical notices, etc. should be included.
Two copies of the book and other relevant documents should be sent to the Executive Director of the Canadian Philosophical Association, PO Box 16081 Dundas Dovercourt, Toronto, ON M6J 3W2 or to firstname.lastname@example.org. (NB: For shipments by courier, please contact email@example.com for further details re: the shipping address) The Selection Committee might require two additional copies of the book if it decides to send the book for external refereeing.
