Martin Koci Has Won the IJP&T Essay Prize
The editorial board of INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF PHILOSOPHY AND THEOLOGY awarded our researcher Martin Koci with the Essay Prize 2016-2017: THE FATE OF METAPHYSICS.
Koci’s winning essay Metaphysical Thinking after Metaphysics: A Theological Reading of Jan Patočka’s Negative Platonism has been already published on Taylor&Francis (the hardcopy of the IJP&T will be released in the early 2018). The jury has acknowledged that “the author argues that the alliance between theology and metaphysical thinking is beneficial for both parties, provided that the fate of metaphysics is read through Jan Patocka’s prophetic reflection on the fate of metaphysics after the end of metaphysical philosophy.” Further, they find Martin Koci’s text as “a lucid, well-structured presentation of Patocka’s negative Platonism […] and a justification why Patocka’s negative Platonism may correlate with the category of faith, as a possible object of theology.”
Congratulations to our colleague Martin on this major achievement and best of luck with the future research of which, according to the IJP&T jury, “the author testifies an extraordinary command.”
