Avishai Margalit’s book On Compromise and Rotten Compromises has been awarded the 2012 Philosophical Book Award from the Hannover Institute of Philosophical Research. This prize is awarded for “the best new book of the last three years referring to a controversial problem in practical philosophy. The Philosophical Book Award is designed to shed some light on urgent philosophical questions and to improve efforts to answer them.”
On Compromise and Rotten Compromises deals with the topic of political compromise, in particular “rotten compromises” made in the name of peace. A great read in the run-up to election season!
