To the Editors:

Your readers may be interested to know that the fourth Jonathan Lieberson Memorial Prize in Philosophy has been awarded to Scott Shapiro for his essay, “Authority, Coordination, and Non-Deliberative Reasoning.” The prize of $1,000 is awarded for an essay by a graduate student in the Philosophy Department at Columbia University “showing the applicability of moral or scientific theory or both to a social or historical issue.” The award was donated by friends of the late Jonathan Lieberson, who was a contributing editor of The New York Review and the author of Varieties.
