Templeton Prize

The Templeton Prize is a coveted prize given to recognise a living person who made notable scientific endeavours to question the purpose of the universe and humanity. Founded in 1972 by John Templeton, it was initially given to people working in the field of religion. Later, since 1980s, it was expanded to include people working at the intersection of science and religion. Naturalist Jane Goodall was recently named as the 2021 winner in recognition of her life’s work on animal intelligence and humanity.
