Helen De Cruz
Wonder Award

On top of a sweet lineup of philosophy talks, we are proud to be presenting at CogSweeto the first ever Helen De Cruz Wonder Award — a new Cogtweeto initiative to recognize philosophers for exceptional positive impact on the philosophy profession, larger philosophical community, and greater social world.


The award recognizes philosophers whose dedication to and joy in wonder has inspired, challenged, and positively shaped the lives of those around them. We can think of no better namesake or inaugural recipient for such an award than Professor Helen De Cruz — a Cogtweeto alum and personal inspiration to philosophers around the globe. 

We invite you to join us in presenting this honor to Professor De Cruz by submitting a note of appreciation for how they have inspired you. 

Notes submitted before the end of the day on April 11 will be eligible to be read aloud at CogSweeto. (Let us know if you would prefer instead that we deliver yours to Prof. De Cruz privately). We will read as many as time permits!
