Dooyeweerd Prize awarded to Dr. Jonathan Chaplin

During its five-yearly international conference last August in Leuven, Belgium, the Board of the Association for Reformational Philosophy awarded Dr. Jonathan Chaplin the Herman Dooyeweerd Prize. The prize is an award for work in the fields of systematic philosophy or the history of philosophy that most furthers the cause of reformational philosophy (the “Philosophy of the Cosmonomic Idea”).

Chaplin, Director of the Kirby Laing Institute for Christian Ethics in Cambridge, received the prize for his book Herman Dooyeweerd: Christian Philosopher of State and Civil Society. The Dooyeweerd prize jury made its selection this year because, “It is a work that carefully explicates Dooyeweerd’s social philosophy and its relevance for discussions on civil society and pluralism . . . published by a prestigious publisher.” The book has been widely reviewed, including a piece in Books and Culture by Gideon Strauss who said, “. . . if you are working in social theory or political philosophy—actually, if you have any personal or professional interest in reading philosophy—or if you are intrigued by ways in which the ideas of Abraham Kuyper can be nuanced and brought to bear on the social and political questions of the 21st century, I recommend this book to you with unbridled enthusiasm.”
