    The Berggruen Prize

     
    The Berggruen Institute seeks to identify and nurture new ideas that have the potential to shape a better human future.  We are committed to science as a source of knowledge and innovation and to philosophy as a source of critical perspective and deeper understanding of the place and role of humanity in the world.
    Each year we offer the Berggruen Prize, a $1 million award that recognizes humanistic thinkers whose ideas have helped us find direction, wisdom, and improved self-understanding in a world being rapidly transformed by profound social, technological, political, cultural, and economic change.  
    While modernity has produced a dramatic expansion of knowledge, it has not delivered a commensurate increase in our understanding of our shared human condition. We believe that philosophy, broadly understood as the disciplined intellectual pursuit of wisdom, has a key role to play in making our complex reality more comprehensible and to prepare us to make wiser choices about our future.

    Onora Sylvia O’Neill, Baroness of O’Neill of Bengarve is the winner of the 2017 Berggruen Prize for Philosophy & Culture. Her work has elevated the quality of public life and improved the very vocabulary of public discourse. I am pleased that this important citizen philosopher has been awarded this year’s Berggruen Prize for Philosophy & Culture,” stated Institute Founder and Chairman Nicolas Berggruen. 
    The Berggruen Institute welcomes nominations of thinkers whose ideas have both intellectual depth and long-term social and practical value across nations and cultures.

    Nominations will only be accepted through this web portal.  The deadline to nominate is 11:55 PM PDT on April 30th, 2018.
