Lauener Prize for an Outstanding Oeuvre in Analytical Philosophy

The second recipient of the Lauener Prize for an Outstanding Oeuvre in Analytical Philosophy was Dagfinn Føllesdal , Clarence Irving Lewis Professor of Philosophy at Stanford University (USA) and Professor of Philosophy, Emeritus, at the University of Oslo (Norway). The Lauener Prize 2006 was given for Føllesdal's body of philosophical work. Dagfinn Føllesdal is one of the most notable and exceptional personalities in the analytical philosophy of the last decades. He has done pioneering work in philosophy of language and logic and has made remarkable contributions to the philosophy of science, philosophy of action and ethics. He has elaborated a seminal interpretation of Husserl, having a crucial influence on bringing the seemingly very diverse traditions of phenomenology and analytical philosophy closer together.
