Kavka Prize 2020: Patrick Tomlin 'On Limited Aggregation'

Patrick Tomlin has been awarded an 'Honourable Mention' for his essay On Limited Aggregation in this year's prestigious Gregory Kavka/University of California, Irvine Prize in Political Philosophy, announced in December 2019 by the American Philosophical Asociation.

Patrick Tomlin's paper, first published in Philosophy and Public Affairs in 2017, advances some new, and fatal objections against the popular view of Limited Aggregation, and argues that the Limited Aggregation view has less real world relevance than its proponents claim, in particular regarding health care distribution.

The Gregory Kavka/UCI Prize in Political Philosophy is awarded every other year in odd years to the author of a paper in a refereed journal, an original book chapter or an original essay published in a collection with multiple contributors, from any area of political philosophy and political theory.
