Rest in peace Hilary Putnam!

putnam_

Very sadly, I’ve learned that Hilary Putnam has died today at the age of 89.

Anyone who met him and read his writings sympathetically can attest he was a great man AND a great philosopher.

The philosophical landscape will appear much empty from now on. But his struggle against both “irrealistic” scientism and irresponsible relativism will remain¬†always as a very precious heritage.

We will miss you a lot, dear Hilary.

RIP
