The Harman Prize
The Gilbert Harman Memorial Prize for Early Career Researchers in Moral Psychology
Over his 54 years in the Department of Philosophy at Princeton, Gilbert Harman exerted an incalculable influence on academic inquiry, through both transformative research and inspirational mentoring. Gil was an early, and extraordinary effective, advocate for interdisciplinary disciplinary approaches to studying the mind, and a dauntless builder of bridges between the is of the human sciences and the ought of philosophical ethics. As a founding member of the Moral Psychology Research Group, Gil nurtured and inspired many junior colleges with his singular intelligence, wise judgement, and ready humor. The Gilbert Harman Memorial Award for Early Career Researchers in Moral Psychology is awarded in recognition of Gil’s intellectual achievements, in gratitude for his commitment to mentoring, and in celebration of his friendship.
