Berggruen Philosophy Prize: For Ideas that Shape the World
To be awarded for the first time in 2016, the Berggruen Philosophy Prize will honor a living thinker whose ideas are of basic importance for contemporary and future life. It is intended to call attention to the role of ideas, of deep and careful thought, and with them humanistic scholarship, social research, intellectual work that is both broad and deep.
The Berggruen Philosophy Prize carries a cash award of $1 million. The honoree will be invited to present and discuss his or her work in a major lecture and a special symposium held within a year of the announcement of the award. Philosophy is here understood broadly, not as a single academic discipline but as serious intellectual work nurturing human wisdom. Nominations of thinkers from all languages, religions, civilizations and/or philosophical traditions are welcome.
