This is very sad news. Dudley was a good friend – and, indeed, the external examiner for my PhD. One of the finest philosophers and people I’ve met. Philosophy has lost someone wonderful.Report
I took classes from Dudley during my “junior year abroad” as an undergrad. It was a buoying revelation; I felt like a potential participant, not a memorizing spectator. He was the warmest teacher I’ve ever had. I’m uncomfortable considering counter-factuals where I’d never met him.Report
