It gives me great pleasure to announce the winner of the Rogers Prize for 2016. This Prize, which was established in 2011 in honour of the work of the founding editor of the BJHP, John Rogers, is awarded each year for the best paper published in the journal in the previous 12 months. The Prize of £1000, jointly funded by the British Society for the History of Philosophy (BSHP) and the publisher of the BJHP, Taylor & Francis, is judged by a committee composed of the Editor and Associate Editors of the journal. The award for 2016 goes to Olaf Mueller of the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin for his article ‘Prismatic Equivalence – A New Case of Underdetermination: Goethe vs. Newton on the Prism Experiments’, published in 24.2. We had a difficult decision to make this year, and we are also delighted to announce two runners-up: Justin Steinberg, of Brooklyn College, City University of New York, for his article ‘Affect, Desire, and Judgment in Spinoza’s Account of Motivation’, published in 24.1, and Thomas McNally, of Trinity College Dublin, for his article ‘More Than a Feeling: Wittgenstein and William James on Love and Other Emotions’, published in 24.4. Congratulations to all three for their excellent contributions to the BJHP.
