The Hermann Lotze Prize
The International Szklarska Poreba Center for Experimental Philosophy & Pragmasemantics has awarded its first Lotze Medal in 2009. The Medal is given in honour of Rudolf Herman Lotze, one of the greatest experimental philosophers of the 19th century and a staunch friend of the founders of the Centre. It is awarded annually to scientists who have made significant contributions to experimental philosophy and pragmasemantics. The internal consistency, coherence and significance of the nominee’s research programme is important, not the uniformity with current mainstream paradigms.
An international committee of distinguished scientists selects the winners from a list of nominated candidates. The committee membership is for a regular period of four years. The deadline for receipt of nominations is 10 November of the year before the prize cerenomy. You can download the "Nomination Form". Submitting an informal nomination is possible.
The Lotze Medal is not awarded to Nobel Laureates, winners of the Rolf Nevanlinna Prize, or Rumelhart Prize winners.

Henry Stapp (Hermann Lotze claimed the possibility of a causal connection between mind and brain. Unfortunately, classical physics provides no rational foundation for such a causal connection. However, quantum mechanics rationally accommodates a two-way causal linkage between mind and brain, as can be seen in the writings of Henry Stapp)
