Prizes and lectures in London

As a quick follow-up to Catarina's latest post, Dan Sperber has just been named Chandaria Laureate by the Institute of Philosophy in London. He and Hugo Mercier are giving a series of three lectures there these days. Audio podcasts of the first and second lecture are already out.

A while back, the decision for another London prize, the 2010 Lakatos Award in Philosophy of Science, was announced by the LSE. The Prize has gone to Peter Godfrey-Smith (Harvard), for his book Darwinian Populations and Natural Selection (Oxford University Press, 2009), and Godfrey-Smith also gave his public lecture in London a couple of weeks ago. A mp3 can be found at this page.
