G.A. Cohen (1941-2009)

I am sorry to report that the great British philosopher Gerald Allan Cohen died this morning, after a massive stroke yesterday. G. A. Cohen was Emeritus Professor of Social & Political Theory at All Souls College, Oxford University.

From here.

See my post on the conference held in honor of G. A. Cohen in January 2009. The conference is available as podcasts and you can in Cohen's closing comments, hear him read some of his favourite poems.
