I’ve just learnt of the sad loss of Jonathan Adler. I knew Jonathan through his association with EPISTEME. The first time we met in person was at Rutgers where he presented a snappy paper. Jonathan and I got on exceedingly well: he was a very kind, gentle, approachable, and not least a most modest man (re: self-effacing about his double doctorate). We met up again in NYC in 2009 and for some time we kicked around some ideas for a joint publishing project – but alas it wasn’t to be. Jonathan Adler – a thoroughly decent and bright chap. Here is a rather fuzzy shot I took of “gentleman Jim” in action at Rutgers.
