First edition

In 2007, in collaboration with the Ferrater Mora Foundation, the 1st Ferrater Mora Essay Prize was announced with the aim of stimulating study and research on the philosopher after whom our Chair is named. This prize is intended to be awarded biennially to the best original unpublished essay on any aspect of Ferrater Mora’s work (philosophy, literature, articles, cinema).

The 1st Ferrater Mora Prize was awarded to Mr. Óscar Horta for his work La filosofía moral de J. Ferrater Mora, published by Documenta Universitaria in 2008.

The prize was awarded at a ceremony held on 25 February 2008, with the participation of the Rector of the UdG, Anna M. Geli, and Prof. Priscilla Cohn, Ferrater Mora’s widow. You can see the speeches of the event and also the press dossier.
