Balzan Prize Awarded to Distinguished Corpuscle

Corpuscle and Honorary Fellow Thomas Nagel (1958), Professor of Law and Philosophy at New York University, has been given the Balzan Prize for Moral Philosophy.

The Prize (established in 1961) was awarded by the International Balzan Prize Foundation, and is intended to foster research in fields which have as their aim the cause of humanity and peace. Professor Nagel was commended for his 'fundamental and innovative contributions to contemporary ethical theory' and the 'originality and fecundity of his philosophical approach to some of the most important questions in contemporary life.'

This honour follows closely on his receipt of the Schock Prize for Scholarship, awarded earlier this year by the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences in recognition of his considerable contributions to the field of Logic and Philosophy.
