Koninklijke Hollandsche Maatschappij der Wetenschappen.
He receives the prize of 12.500 euros for his dissertation and other publications.

Every four years the prize goes to someone in the domain of philosophy/theological studies.
This is already the fourth time that the prize goes to someone who did his PhD in the Department of the History of Philosophy at the Groningen Faculty of Philosophy. Earlier prize winners are Han van Ruler (1996), Lodi Nauta (2000), and Pieter Sjoerd Hasper (2004).
