Alan Wertheimer (2015) (updated)

Alan Wertheimer, professor emeritus at the University of Vermont, has died. Professor Wertheimer worked mainly in ethics and political philosophy, both theoretical and applied, with well-known work on coercion, exploitation, and various topics in biomedical ethics. He spent most of his career at the University of Vermont, in the Department of Political Science, but also had held visiting appointments at the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University and the University of San Diego School of Law.


Larry Solum has a few words about Wertheimer at his Legal Theory Blog (via Leiter).
