Peter Strawson, RIP
Sir Peter Strawson, one of the big cheeses of analytic philosophy, passed away a week ago. The Times of London has a great obit -- not surprising considering how good British papers are at obituaries -- that really does justice to Strawson's contributions to philosophy and consequently is much heavier on theory than anything you'll see in an American paper.
The Times is a conservative rag, but that's nothing to do with it. The Guardian's obit for David Lewis is comparably impressive.
