Over at Crooked Timber, Harry Brighouse reports the sad news that his colleague Ellery Eells has died. As Harry says, Eells’ combination of technical ability and philosophical insight was rare and valuable. I never met him, but both Harry and Larry Shapiro report he was also a wonderful person and colleague as well.
UPDATE: In comments Branden Fitelson, who was a student of Eells, has some memories of what Eells was like as a teacher and supervisor.
