On the 4th and 5th of June 2009 philosophers will gather to honour Mark Sacks, who died last year. Mark was the founding editor of the European Journal of Philosophy and a leading scholar of Kantian and post-Kantian philosophy. I can’t say that I got to know him as well as I would have liked, but I always found him to be a very supportive and well-respected colleague. His obituary from the Times is here.
The event is to be held at the Wilkins Haldane Room at University College London. Speakers will inclue Lilian Alweis, Jay Bernstein, Peter Dews, Sebastian Gardner and Adrian Moore.
