Philosophy Professor Emeritus John Perry, whose idea for the interdepartmental program that became Symbolic Systems was our founding inspiration, has won an Ig Nobel Prize for Literature from the organization Improbable Research, which awards the prizes for "Research that makes people LAUGH and then THINK". Prof. Perry won the award for his essay, "How to Procrastinate and Still Get Things Done," first published in the Chronicle of Higher Education, February 23, 1996 and later republished elsewhere under the title "Structured Procrastination." This year's prizes were awarded on September 29 in a ceremony at Harvard University. Prof. Perry was in Germany, and the award was accepted on his behalf by his editor, Deborah Wilkes.
