Recent and Upcoming Retirements 2022-23


As it may be useful to prospective graduate students to know about the status of faculty at programs they’re considering, I’ll be maintaining a list here of philosophers at departments with graduate programs who have either retired already in 2022 or will be retiring sometime between now and the start of the 2023 academic year.

Please send news of such retirements to [email protected] and I will add them to this post. Thank you.
