The Book Prize for Senior Scholars is awarded for an outstanding book dealing with any aspect of Kant’s philosophy. Submissions will be judged by a panel consisting of members drawn from the NAKS Advisory Board, and the winner will receive a prize of $500. Calls for submissions and more details will be issued in the newsletter. The Awards Committee reserves the right not to award a prize, if in its judgment no prize is warranted.

• Authors must be members of NAKS at the time of submission.
• Submission must be made by the publisher, and four (4) copies of the book must be submitted to NAKS.
