Jerry Herbel Ph.D. was recently recognized as the recipient of the 2013 Georgia Political Science Association (GPSA) McBrayer Award for his paper titled “Public Virtue-Public Vice.”  Dr. Herbel’s article seeks to reconcile the mismatch between public virtue and public vice created through concepts put forth principally by Niccolò  Machiavelli and David Hume.

The McBrayer Award is awarded in years when a paper of outstanding scholarship within the discipline is presented in its entirety at the GPSA annual meeting program and subsequently recognized as such at the discretion of the Editorial Board and Editor in Chief of the Proceedings of the GSPA by their decision to bestow the McBrayer Award.  Dr. Herbel’s paper was presented at the 2012 Annual Conference of the Association.

Founded in 1968, the GPSA is the professional association for political science practitioners and educators in Georgia.  Membership is drawn from the public, private and academic sectors.
