The Kathy Wilkes Memorial Conference 

Beginning this year (tomorrow), The Herbert Simon Society (Turin), IUC Dubrovnik, and St. Hilda’s College Oxford are putting on an annual conference to honour Kathy Wilkes. The conference deals with the impact of the cognitive sciences on the social, political and economic sciences. For online attendance details, contact Giovanni De Rosa.

It was through Roger Scruton and Bill Newton-Smith that I briefly met Kathy in the late 80s. For those who might not know anything about her, see here, here and here. Kathy’s Real People is a great and accessible read.

Paul Cantor (1945-2022) 

I had the honour and the pleasure of meeting Paul at a conference a decade ago in Indianapolis. See Farewell to a Great Shakespearean.
