Full Answer

The Nobel Prize is given in five different areas, including physics, literature, medicine, peace and chemistry, as the economics prize is not technically a Nobel Prize. From 1901 through 2014, a total of 521 Nobel Prizes and 46 Prizes in Economic Sciences have been awarded. As of 2014, two people have turned down the Nobel Prize: writer-philosopher John-Paul Sartre in 1964 and Vietnamese leader Le Duc Tho in 1973.
