04/11/2005: Hintikka wins 2005 Schock prize
Finnish philosopher Jaakko Hintikka is the winner of the 2005 Schock Prize in Logic and Philosophy.
The Schock Prize is the closest thing philosophy has to a Nobel. Like the Nobel Prizes, the Schock Prizes are awarded by the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences, but the Schock Prizes are only awarded every other year. (Making them even more exclusive!)
