Mike Jacovides: Associate Professor of Philosophy at Purdue University
Palindrome: Emo, notable Stacy began a memory by Rome. Manage by cats, Elba to Nome.

Book choice (out of 12 or more): Error and the Growth of Experimental Knowledge (D. Mayo 1996, Chicago)
Bio: Mike Jacovides is an Associate Professor of Philosophy at Purdue University. He’s just finishing a book whose title is constantly changing, but which may end up being called Locke’s Image of the World and the Scientific Revolution.
Statement: My interest in palindromes was sparked by my desire to learn more about the philosophy of statistics. The fact that you can learn about the philosophy of statistics by writing a palindrome seems like evidence that anything can cause anything, but maybe once I read the book, I’ll learn that it isn’t. I am glad that ‘emo, notable Stacy’ worked out, I have to say.
Congratulations Mike! I hope you’ll continue to pursue philosophy of statistics! We need much more of that. Good choice of book prize too. D. Mayo
Distinguished Honorable Mention: Lori Wike: Principal bassoonist of the Utah Symphony; Faculty member at University of Utah and Westminster College. Lori is an expert palindromist who has won our contest so many times that she probably has a book shelf of prize books. Here are some links to her winning palindromes: April 2014, June 2014, December 2014, June 2015.
A memory trap.

Ah, comic in or irony? Rome: Meg, a red nude man on Elba. Fan a memory assay. Rome man, a fable, no-named, underage memory, nor ironic. I mocha.

Able nose, nut, pariah. Plato: help Paris. Tax a mini memories use. I, Rome, minimax at Sir Apple. “Hot alpha,” I rap tunes on Elba.
