Hubert Dreyfus (1929-2017)

It is with deep sadness that we record the death of Prof. Hubert Dreyfus, who passed away on April 22, 2017. Bert had been a member of the Berkeley philosophy department since 1968, and he will long be remembered by us for his groundbreaking work on Heidegger, his extraordinary teaching and mentoring, and his unswerving commitment to the welfare of our students. We are happy that he was able to carry on with all aspects of his work right up to the end, and the intellectual openness and sense of excitement which pervaded his teaching will continue to serve as an inspiration for us.

There will be a memorial event from 9.30-11.30 on Wednesday, May 24 at Alumni House on the Berkeley campus. The event is open to everyone, and you are warmly invited to attend.

Rumfitt lecture Apr 27 will not take place

Due to illness, Prof. Rumfitt will not be able to give the George Myro Lecture, scheduled for Thurs. Apr 27. We’re hoping to rearrange it for the coming academic year.
