In memoriam: Hilary Putnam
|The Philosophy Department notes with deep sadness the death of Hilary Putnam who was Cogan University Professor at Harvard University. Professor Putnam’s work has had a significant and lasting influence on contemporary philosophy, cognitive science and mathematics. It has also influenced many members of the Department. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him.|
