Nagel's Prizes

Further to my post about Tom Nagel and Intelligent Design (September 15th), and Brian Leiter's information that Nagel has won the Balzan Prize worth 885,000$, a Swedish friend informs me that he was once "awarded the Swedish Rolf Schock prize in philosophy (or "philosophy and logic", as the statutes have it - "and" to be read as "or"!)."

Mohan, regarding that "once": Nagel was actually awarded the prize for 2008; by the time of your post, he hadn't received it yet. /Sören
