2014 Winner

Shaughnessy Cohen Prize for Political Writing

for Enlightenment 2.0: Restoring Sanity to Our Politics, Our Economy, and Our Lives

Jury Citation

“A magisterial survey of the shambles that remains of the Enlightenment’s great promise, Joseph Heath’s Enlightenment 2.0 is a vivid chronicle of the descent of contemporary politics into a bedlam of competing irrationalities and appeals to unreason. Drawing deeply from popular culture, the social sciences, psychology, and public policy, Enlightenment 2.0 is an important work of serious philosophy that is at the same time lively, lucid, engaging, and entertaining.” – 2014 Shaughnessy Cohen Prize Jury (Denise Chong, Terry Galvin, Jane Taber)
