Acceptance Speech: “I am honored to accept the first Ornie award for Outstanding Guest post and I thank Christy and the judges. Even more so I am glad that the topic of the post is getting the attention it deserves. I hope this will translate into more philosophy departments recognizing that the pervasiveness of the aesthetic in our lives should be reflected in the composition of their faculty.”—Anna Christina Ribeiro
