Professor David Buller (Northern Illinois) asked me to share this memorial notice:
Tomis Kapitan, Distinguished Teaching Professor Emeritus at Northern Illinois University, passed away October 12 in London, where he had been living since his retirement in 2014. He was 66. Professor Kapitan was a member of the Philosophy Department at NIU for 23 years, during which time he served as a model philosopher, teacher, and colleague, enriching the life of the department and inspiring generations of students through whom his example and influence live on.
Professor Kapitan, who studied with Hector-Neri Castenada at Indiana University, Bloomington, published many articles on topics in philosophy of language, metaphysics, and philosophy of logic, and also wrote extensively on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
