Veranstaltende Institution: Hodges Foundation for Philosophical Orientation

Subject: How does the digitization of our world change our orientation?

The philosophical prize competition is organized by the Hodges Foundation for Philosophical Orientation, which is currently being established in Nashville, Tennessee. The Foundation is neither for making profit nor for following any political or religious aims. It is supported by the financial entrepreneur Mike Hodges and based on Werner Stegmaier’s philosophy of orientation, which investigates the conditions and structures of our everyday human orientation. The original German book "Philosophie der Orientierung" appeared in 2008; now, an abridged, improved, and translated version with the title "What is Orientation? A Philosophical Orientation" was published also by De Gruyter, Berlin/Boston.

For this prize competition, it expects new (not already published in this or a similar shape) contributions from various scholarly points of view, of any length, and with promising philosophical perspectives. Authors may connect to "What is Orientation?" but are not obligated to do so. In any case, they should offer new insights and prospects concerning the digitization of our orientation. The preferred language is English.

The Foundation provides the following prize awards:

1st prize award: $25,000,

2nd prize award: $15,000,

3rd prize award: $10,000

Special student award: $5,000 (if no student is among the first 3).

The jury consists of the board of the HFPO and additional peers.
