                  The John Somerville Peace Essay Award

                    For Graduate Students In Philosophy

     This award will be administered by the Society for the Philosophical
Study of Marxism, of which John Somerville was a co-founder and first
president.  It will be given annually in the amount of $500. In the spirit
of the Marxist-humanist approach of John Somerville, the essay should
analyze critically one or more of the themes treated in his writings.
These themes include the philosophy of peace, war and omnicide, social and
political philosophy, philosophy of international relations, as well as
the standard problems of philosophy.  Essays are invited from men and
women through- out the world who, at the time of submitting the paper, are
registered as graduate students in philosophy, or can give some other
proof that they are bona fide graduate students.  Entries should be
unpublished, typed double-spaced in English, 5,000 to 10,000 words in
length, and submitted in triplicate.  They should be accompanied by an
abstract of not more than 300 words.  The deadline is January 1, 1997.  To
ensure a blind review of all entries, the essay and the abstract should be
accompanied by a sealed envelope containing the name and address of the
entrant and the title of the essay.  Essays will not be returned.  The
judges will be selected by the executive committee of the Society.  If the
receiver of the award resides in North America, he or she will normally be
expected to read his essay at a meeting of the Society in the Easter,
Pacific or Central Division meeting of the American Philosophical
Association.  The Society for the Philosophical Study of Marxism reserves
the right to publish all or part of the winning essay.

Essays should be sent to James Lawler Philosophy Department, SUNY at
Buffalo, Buffalo, NY, 14260, tel: 716-645-2444 ext. 770, fax:
716-645-6139, e-mail: jlawler at acsu.buffalo.edu
