STS Prof in award-winning book
13 February 2014
Professor Joe Cain (@profjoecain) has had news that the 2013 volume, Cambridge History of Darwin and Evolutionary Thought (publisher), in which his essay on "Synthesis Period in Evolution" appears, has won the 2013 PROSE award (single-volume humanities/social science reference work, link).
Cambridge University Press officials describe the PROSE awards as the "publishing industry's equivalent to the Academy awards," "really important," and "highly competitive". The PROSE awards are given by the American Association of Publishers, the trade group of the publishing industry.
"Although this was a team effort," Joe explains, "credit really should go to the coach, Professor Michael Ruse. He put an enormous amount of effort in this project, and he got the best out each author."
Michael Ruse will be visiting UCL at the end of February, and we've already organised an evening to discuss his latest book on Gaia, James Locklock and the history of anti-reductionism in the ecological thinking (details).
