Canadian Philosophical Association Prizes

A number of prizes are awarded by the Canadian Philosophical Association. In addition to the student essay prizes and the Biennial Book Prize, the CPA awards two faculty essay prizes.

  • 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.
  • Dialogue, the bilingual journal of the Canadian Philosophical Association, awards up to three essay prizes each year to papers submitted by students for the Annual Congress of the CPA. Papers submitted by students are double-blind refereed together with papers submitted by faculty and others. One prize is reserved for each official language; prizes are awarded when merited. There is a first prize and two equal second prizes.
  • The CPA also offers two essay prizes for faculty papers submitted to our annual conference: Non-tenured Professor, Lecturer, Sessional Essay Prize; and Tenured Professor Essay Prize. The Non-tenured Professor, Lecturer, Sessional Essay Prize is awarded to authors with a completed PhD who are either pre-tenure (tenure-stream) or non-tenured. The Tenured Professor Essay Prize is given to authors with a completed PhD who have been awarded tenure.
