APF gives Giorgi the Gittler award
for outstanding contributions
APF has presented Amedeo P. Giorgi,
PhD, with its $7,500 Joseph B. Gittler
Award, which recognizes an outstanding
field 50 years ago at a time when there
was little interest in and attention to
philosophy. To address that need, in
1962 Giorgi established the first U.S.
psychology doctoral program with
a strong emphasis on philosophy at
Duquesne University. In 1970, he
founded the first psychology journal
featuring philosophical psychology, the
Journal of Phenomenological Psychology.
Giorgi also served as president of the
Society of Theoretical and Philosophical
Psychology in 1973 and of the Society
for Humanistic Psychology in 1987.
The award honors the memory of
Joseph B. Gittler, PhD, a sociologist who
focused on social philosophy and the
experience of minority groups.
