The William James Society has awarded its 2017 Young Scholar Prize to Kyle Bromhall for his essay, "Embodied Akrasia: James on Motivation and Weakness of Will.". Kyle is a recent graduate of the PhD program in Philosophy at the University of Guelph, where he currently teaches.
The University of Guelph resides on the land of the Between the Lakes Treaty No. 3, the territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit. This land is part of the Dish with One Spoon, a covenant between Indigenous nations to live peaceably on the territories of the Great Lakes region. We recognize that today this gathering place is home to many First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples and acknowledging them reminds us of our collective responsibility to the land where we learn, live and work.
