Philosopher Michael Weber, Chair of the Department at Bowling Green, writes:
It is with sadness that I report that Ray Frey (1941-2012) passed away yesterday. Ray was Professor Emeritus at Bowling Green State University (BGSU), and a Senior Researcher at the Social Philosophy and Policy Center at BGSU. He joined the faculty at BGSU in 1986, having previously taught at Liverpool from 1974-86. He is well-known for his numerous books and articles in moral and political philosophy. His work is wide-ranging, and included important contributions in applied ethics. Ray was also instrumental in launching Bowling Green’s innovative and highly successful Ph.D. in Applied Philosophy. No memorial service is scheduled.
