Benjamin Décarie-Daigneault Receives Three Awards for Two Papers
Benjamin Décarie-Daigneault, a graduate student in Philosophy, was awarded the Graduate Prize at the 2022 Conference of the Canadian Society for Continental Philosophy.
Ben presented his paper, entitled “Merleau-Ponty and the “Absolute Past of Nature”: Awakening the Wild-Flowering World at the Horizon of the Lifeworld,” at the 2022 CSCP conference in London, Ontario, in October 2022, winning the Graduate Prize and earning the paper a publication in the journal Symposium.
This publication led to the inclusion of Ben’s article, “Merleau-Ponty and the Transcendental Past: From the Nascent State of Perception to the Ontogenesis of Nature” in the upcoming Fall 2023 issue of Symposium.
Ben added two more prizes to his experience with his paper, “The Crooked Finger of Chauvet-Pont d’Arc: A Merleau-Pontian Account of Parietal Art.”
This paper was awarded the Graduate Prize at the 2023 conference of the Canadian Society for Continental Philosophy, held in Orono, Maine, in September this year. The M.C. Dillon Memorial Lecture Award was also awarded to Ben for this paper by the International Merleau-Ponty Circle. He will present his paper at the conference of the IMPC in December this year.
Congratulations on your great work, Ben!
