Charles Taylor Wins Kluge Prize

Yesterday, Librarian of Congress James Billington announced that philosophers Charles Taylor and Jürgen Habermas would share this year's $1.5 million John W. Kluge Prize for Achievement in the Study of Humanity. At the announcement, Billington described Charles Taylor as "a philosopher of extraordinary eminence ... His writings reveal astonishing breadth and depth, ranging across subjects as diverse as metaphysics, modern culture, human conduct and behaviour, modernization and the place of religion in a secular age. He writes with a lucidity that makes his work accessible to the non-specialist reader, ensuring that his contributions to our understanding of agency, freedom, spirituality and the relation between the natural sciences and the humanities will be of lasting import.”
