  The  American Society for Aesthetics announces that the 2020 Prize for Outstanding Monograph has been awarded to Rachel Zuckert for Herder's Naturalist Aesthetics (Cambridge 2019).

As stated by the review committee of senior ASA members:

Herder’s Naturalist Aesthetics, by Rachel Zuckert, demonstrates the extent to which this relatively neglected thinker engaged in serious aesthetic theorizing, and it establishes his significance in the development of the field.  Zuckert offers an impressively comprehensive synthesis from challengingly messy materials, showing that Herder’s wide-ranging reflections build from his basic commitments to aesthetic naturalism.  She never makes things too easy either for herself or for Herder; she acknowledges statements in Herder that challenge her interpretation and points at which she is reconstructing or extending his arguments. The book is a model of thoughtful scholarship, and it represents an important contribution to the field of aesthetics.

The Outstanding Monograph Prize has been awarded annually since 2008. The 2021 prize will be awarded for a monograph published in 2020. The submission deadline is February 1, 2021, with the prize awarded at the 2021 Annual Meeting in November.
