Ted Cohen Prize
Share |

To honor the enormous contributions of Ted Cohen to aesthetics and the American Society for Aesthetics, Andy Austin Cohen and the ASA established in 2014 a $1000 annual prize "to recognize writing that is clear, graceful, and unencumbered by jargon or academic clichés. It should examine serious problems in aesthetics while also giving pleasure to the reader." In memory of Ted, his wife Andy Austin Cohen has generously funded this prize. Winners were selected each year by a committee of three senior ASA members, appointed by the ASA President.

The Ted Cohen prize will no longer be offered after 2020.
