Topic areas


The North American Kant Society is pleased to issue a call for submissions for the NAKS Senior Scholar Prize.  The prize is awarded annually for an outstanding article or book dealing with any aspect of Kant’s philosophy and published in the two years preceding ("online first" publication counts).  The Prize is on a two-year cycle, with articles and books accepted in alternating years.  We invite ARTICLE nominations for the 2024 Senior Scholar Prize (for articles published in 2022 or 2023) until May 31, 2024.  

In addition to accolades, the winner will receive an honorary prize of $300.

The article submissions are anonymized and administered anonymously by the NAKS Executive Committee and judged anonymously by a NAKS Awards Committee composed of members of the NAKS Board of Trustees.

The Awards Committee reserves the right not to award a prize, if in its judgment no prize is warranted.

Eligibility rules:
•  Only single-authored articles written in English will be considered.

• The author must be a Senior scholar by the year the article in question was published. “Senior” is defined as: “10 years beyond the official receipt of the Ph.D. or most advanced degree," regardless of employment status or age.

• Authors must be members of NAKS at the time of submission

• Current NAKS Executive and/or Advisory Board Members are not eligible to compete for the prize.

The publication date for these purposes is the date on which the paper is first available in its final form on the journal website.  Thus, "online first" papers count, even if they have not yet appeared in print.
