Jay F. Rosenberg, 1942-2008

This was a philosophy professor you should know about. His book, The Practice of Philosophy, is the best short introduction to the subject I know. It is clear he lived a full and rich life, worthy of emulation. I have copied his obituary here. His webpage is well worth exploring.

  1. I liked this aphorism from his website:
    ‘Every age needs a myth. Ours is that we live in an age that no longer needs a myth.’
