President's Prize 2008 to Dr. Tzachi Zamir for Research on Philosophical Concepts in Literature

December 24 2008 - Dr. Tzachi Zamir of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem this week received the University President’s Outstanding Young Researcher Prize for 2008.

According to Hebrew University President Prof. Menachem Magidor, the prize is being awarded to Dr. Zamir for his success in combining research in literature and philosophy, an approach that has led him to reveal philosophical insights within literary texts that were not intended as philosophical texts. The prize is awarded in honor of the late Prof. Yoram Ben Porath, former president and rector of the Hebrew University.

The prize’s judges explained that Dr. Zamir's publications position him at the forefront of young researchers at the University with his involvement and contribution to faculty life signaling the University’s abilities to absorb new researchers.

Dr. Zamir was born in 1967 and has been a lecturer in the Department of General and Comparative Literature and the Department of English since 2004. He teaches undergraduate and graduate courses on love, literature and philosophy, poetic justice and selected plays by Shakespeare. In 2005, Dr. Zamir received the Polonsky Prize for Creativity and Originality for his book Double Vision: Moral Philosophy and Shakespearean Darma. He is a member of the Renaissance Society of America and the American Philosophical Association. He is married with three children.
