NASSP Book Award

October 21, 2016 News No Comments

Call for Nominations

Each year the North American Society for Social Philosophy (NASSP) honors the best book published in social philosophy during the previous year. The Book Award Committee invites you to nominate a book to compete for the award for 2016. (For the purposes of this award, a book’s eligibility is determined by the year of its copyright rather than by the year of its release.)

The Award will be conferred on a book published in 2016 that makes the most significant contribution to social philosophy. The field is to be construed broadly, to include social and political philosophy, philosophy of law, philosophy of social science, and social ethics. Excluded are anthologies, historical studies, and works on ethics that lack a distinctly social component and works on a social topic that lack a substantial philosophical component.

The Award is presented at the NASSP annual conference. The author and Book Award committee members participate in a panel discussion of the book. The comments and author response from the panel are published in Social Philosophy Today.

The deadline for nominations is no later than December 31, 2016.  Nominations (including self-nominations) should be submitted here:

For inquiries about the 2016 NASSP Book Award, please contact the Award Committee chairperson, Dr. Greg Hoskins, gregory.hoskins@villanova.edu.
