MOVING TO FRONT FROM MARCH 13--UPDATED
One of the great figures of post-WWII "analytic" philosophy, Professor Putnam made seminal contributions to the philosophies of science, mathematics, language, and mind. He earned his PhD at UCLA with Hans Reichenbach, and taught at Northwestern, Princeton, MIT and for most of his career at Harvard, where he was emeritus. I will add links to memorial notices as they appear. (Addendum: I'm told by a friend of Putnam's that he died of mesothelioma.)
FUNERAL INFORMATION: The funeral will be Monday at 12:30 p.m. at Levine Chapel, 470 Harvard Street, Brookline. Burial will be immediately after at the Crawford St. Cemetery at 776 Baker Street, West Roxbury.
ANOTHER: A memorial from Martha Nussbaum.
