Published: November 6, 2023

We are pleased to announce that Catherine Hochman is the 2022-23 winner of the Rudolf and Ina Carnap Prize for her essay entitled “Representations of Self in Perception.”

“Representations of Self in Perception” by Catherine Hochman provides an elegant articulation and defense of the thesis that individuals form self-representations within their perceptual systems prior to and independently of any representations of themselves that they form in thought or language.

The prize is given annually in memory of Rudolf and Ina Carnap for excellent philosophical writing by a graduate student. More information regarding the prize can be found here and a list of previous Carnap Prize Essayists can be found here.
