The RSA congratulates Lodi Nauta, professor at the University of Groningen and long-time RSA member, on winning the 2016 NWO Spinoza Prize. This prestigious award consists of 2.5 million euros to put toward research.
From the NWO's citation:
Prof. L.W. (Lodi) Nauta (1966) is professor of history of philosophy at the University of Groningen. Nauta has established unexpected but structural parallels in his work between philosophical thought about language in the Middle Ages, the Renaissance and the twentieth century. His innovative approach combines linguistic, historical and philosophical insights about the place of humanism in the history of Western philosophy.
