The Metaphysics of Truth Wins APA Sanders Book Prize

I meant to post about this while ago, but since the coronavirus pandemic hit and the schools closed, it’s been very difficult to find a moment to do anything really.

Anyway, not so much a wrestling post, but a brief word about another book of mine, The Metaphysics of Truth (Oxford University Press, 2018), which was recently awarded the prestigious 2019 Sanders Book Book Prize by the American Philosophical Association. The prize, funded by the Marc Sanders Foundation, is awarded to the best book in philosophy of mind, metaphysics, or epistemology that engages the analytic tradition published in English in the previous five-year period. More info on the prize itself, and previous winners, here.

This was a huge deal for me, as it’s pretty much the main prize that a book in my field can win. I was awarded the prize by APA Executive Director Amy Ferrer at the Central Division meeting of the American Philosophical Association in Chicago in February 2020.

Some news stories about the award were published by the Utica Observer Dispatch, and the Rome Sentinel.

More info about the book on this site can be found here. For more on my thoughts about the book itself, how I wrote it, and what I hoped to achieve with it, you can check out the interview I did with Nathan Eckstrand of the APA Blog here.
