2014 Eric Hoffer Award / Winner of Montaigne Medal
Each year, the Eric Hoffer Award for books presents the Montaigne Medal to the most thought-provoking book(s). These are books that either illuminate, progress, or redirect thought. The Montaigne Medal is given in honor of the great French philosopher Michel de Montaigne, who influenced people such as William Shakespeare, Ren? Descartes, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Friedrich Nietzsche, Jean-Jacques Rousseau, and Eric Hoffer. This is an additional distinction beneath the Eric Hoffer Award umbrella.
“I felt all the time he was writing about me. He knew my innermost thoughts.”
-Eric Hoffer, from his memoir, Truth Imagined
