2014 Schmitt Prize: Winning Essay Announced

The International Society for Intellectual History is pleased to announce the winner of the 2014 Charles Schmitt Prize. The Prize was awarded to Daniel Bessner for his essay, ‘Murray Rothbard, Political Strategy, and the Making of Modern Libertarianism in the 1970s’. The winning essay will be published in Intellectual History Review, in due course. The judges would also like to highly commend the runner-up Máté Vince for his essay  ‘Ambiguity in Late-Sixteenth Century Education’.

As the result of generous donations from an anonymous donor and our publisher (Routledge), the International Society for Intellectual History offers, on an annual basis, a prize to honour the contribution of the late Charles Schmitt to intellectual history. The prize is £250, plus £50 worth of Routledge books, as well as a subscription to the Society’s quarterly journal Intellectual History Review.
