Rest in peace Hilary 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.
