Essay prize for people (a) 40 or younger with (b) a Ph.D. in hand and (c) not in a tenured position.  (It’s nice that NAKS is doing this but someone should endow this so that the payout is a bit larger… The  home of Sellarsian-Kantianism, for instance!)

In memoriam Gary BanhamApril 7th, 2013

by AndrewNews

By way of Dennis Schulting, Kantpapers recently received the sad news that Gary Banham unexpectedly passed away.

Gary was founding editor of Kant Studies Online and ran a much more active blog than this called InterKant.  Although I never met him personally, I had a few email exchanges with him and admired his dedication to the study of Kant and the promotion of Kantian ideas.
