The Sir Karl Popper Essay Prize was established by a bequest from the late Dr Laurence B. Briskman, formerly of the Department of Philosophy, University of Edinburgh.

In 2011, arrangements for the Sir Karl Popper Essay Prize have changed.

From 2011 on, the Prize will be awarded for the best paper appearing in the British Journal for the Philosophy of Science for that year, on a topic or topics to which Sir Karl made a significant contribution.

The value of the Prize is £1000 and will be awarded on the basis of the judgement of the Editors of the Journal.
