2019 Berggruen Award – May 15
Berggruen Institute Invites Nominations for 2019 Berggruen Award
Established in 2010, the Berggruen Institute works across cultures, disciplines, and political boundaries, engaging great thinkers to develop and promote long-term answers to the biggest challenges of the twenty-first century.
Each year, the institute offers the Berggruen Prize, a $1 million award that recognizes thinkers whose ideas are of broad significance for shaping human self-understanding and the advancement of humanity.
While modernity has produced a dramatic expansion of knowledge, it has not delivered a commensurate increase in our understanding of our shared human condition. The Berggruen Institute believes that philosophy, broadly understood as the disciplined intellectual pursuit of wisdom, has a key role to play in making our complex reality more comprehensible and to prepare us to make wiser choices about our future.
For complete program guidelines, nomination instructions, and information about previous recipients, see the Berggruen Institute website.
