August 2018

What's new?

IN MEMORIAM

With great sadness, we report the passing of Aristides Arageorgis. Aris completed his PhD in the Department of HPS in 1996 and was a Visiting Fellow in the Center for Philosophy of Science in 2013. He was much admired for the absolute precision of his scholarship and for the depth of his understanding. He was much loved for his gentle ways and his great kindness to everyone. We will miss him.
