An important contributor to metaphysics, philosophy of language and logic, Prof. Sommers, who passed away yesterday, held the Harry A.Wolfson Chair in Philosophy at Brandeis University before his retirement in 1993. His son, the philosopher Tamler Sommers (Houston), writes that, "The service will be Monday October 6 at 1 PM at Ohev Sholom Synagogue, 1600 Jonquil Street, NW Washington, DC 20012. It is open to all. My brother and I, and my stepmother Christina Hoff Sommers, will sit Shiva all of next week at his home."
I will add links to additional memorial notices as they appear.
