Barry Stroud (1935-2019)
It is with great sadness that we announce that Barry Stroud died on August 9. He was diagnosed with brain cancer, at a very advanced stage, just two months ago.
His body of work, his influence on generations of students, his imprint on the character of our department, the example that he set of the purest philosophical inquiry — all of it is beyond reckoning. As hard as it is to imagine what philosophy at Berkeley will be like without him, it is even harder to imagine what it would have been.
In due time, information about memorials will follow.
