To the Editors:
Your readers may be interested to know that the sixth Jonathan Lieberson Memorial Prize in Philosophy has been awarded to Brian Orend for his essay “Rehabilitating False Consciousness?” Mr. Orend received his bachelor’s degree from the University of Waterloo, Ontario, in 1994 and came to Columbia to pursue his Ph.D. in Philosophy. The prize of $1,000 is awarded each year for the best essay by a graduate student in the Philosophy Department at Columbia University “showing 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 of Books and the author of Varieties.
