Kenneth Taylor, the Henry Waldgrave Stuart Professor of Philosophy at Stanford University, has died.
Professor Taylor taught at Stanford since 1995. Prior to that, he worked at Rutgers University, the University of Maryland, Wesleyan University, the University of North Carolina, and Middlebury College. He earned his Ph.D. at the University of Chicago, and his bachelor’s at the University of Notre Dame.
