Philip Johnson-Laird , the Stuart Professor of Psychology, has been selected as the recipient of this year's Fyssen Foundation International Prize.
The prize is awarded annually by the Paris-based foundation to a scientist who has conducted distinguished research in the areas supported by the foundation such as ethology, paleontology, archaeology, anthropology, psychology, epistemology, logic and the neurosciences.
A leading cognitive scientist, Johnson-Laird has been on the Princeton faculty since 1989. His research interests include the psychology of reasoning and language.
This is the second time that a Princeton psychology professor has received this award. George Miller, the James McDonnell Distinguished University Professor of Psychology Emeritus, won the prize in 1991.
