Jay Rosenberg, a mainstay of the Department of Philosophy at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill for some forty years, passed away yesterday. He was, of course, well-known for his many contributions to philosophy of language, metaphysics, and epistemology. I will add a link to a memorial notice as soon as one is available.
UPDATE: An obituary from a local paper is here.
ANOTHER UPDATE: Professor Rosenberg's daughter sends the following information about a memorial service: "A memorial service will be held 1:00 p.m. Saturday, March 15, 2008 at Extraordinary Ventures, 200 South Elliott Road, Chapel Hill 27514 www.extraordinaryventures.org. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the Jay Rosenberg Cookbook Scholarship, Reed College, 3203 SE Woodstock Blvd, Portland, OR 97202. The cookbook can also be ordered online at www.bookstore.reed.edu
