Bob will be sorely missed by many of us. His warmth and humour, his brilliance, and his willingness to talk logic (and much more) to anyone and everyone, will all be impossible to replace. If I manage to show a small fraction of both his logical insight, and his ability to communicate difficult concepts with good humour and wit, I’ll be a happy philosophical logician.
This weekend I’m off to Adelaide for one of our many Adelaide–Melbourne logic weekend funfests. This time it will be a bittersweet occasion, with many opportunities share our stories of the Maximum Leader of the Logicians’ Liberation League, and to toast his passing.
Thanks, Bob, for all you’ve done for me. My work and my life has been enriched in having you as a part of it.
