Jean Nicod Prize


Jean Nicod Prize

The Jean Nicod Prize is awarded annually in Paris to a leading philosopher of mind or philosophically-oriented cognitive scientist. The lectures are organized by the "Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique" (CNRS) as part of its effort to promote interdisciplinary research in cognitive science in France. The 1993 lectures marked the centenary of the birth of the French philosopher and logician Jean Nicod (1893-1924). Besides the CNRS, sponsors include the École Normale Supérieure (ENS) and the École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales (EHESS). The "Jean Nicod lecturer" is expected to deliver at least four lectures on a topic of his or her choice, and subsequently to publish the set of lectures, or a monograph based on them in the "Jean Nicod Lectures series" (MIT Press/Bradford Books; F. Recanati editor).
