Linda Zagzebski (Leadership Team)
In 1996, professor of philosophy Linda Zagzebski published Virtues of the Mind: An Inquiry into the Nature of Virtue and the Ethical Foundations of Knowledge (Cambridge University Press, 1996). The book quickly became a landmark work in contemporary epistemology, and has been translated into multiple languages over the past decade. The Persian edition, translated by Amirhossein Khodaparast, recently won Iran’s Book of the Year Award for western philosophy translations. This is Iran’s most important annual award for books in categories of religion, philosophy, social sciences, language, applied sciences, art and literature. The award ceremony was held on Tuesday, Feb. 5, 2019. Distinguished guests at the ceremony included president Rouhani, various government cultural ministers, and some of the most important figures in Iran’s scientific community. Read more
