The passing of two eminent philosophers of religion

Two leading figures in the philosophy of religion recently died: Jordan Howard Sobel and Antony Flew.

Here are some reminiscences about Flew by colleagues and students, and here are some more by Michael Ruse.

I first heard of Professor Sobel in connection with the ontological argument. He was one of the first people to write about Kurt Godel's version of that proof.

A memorial service for Professor Sobel will be held in Toronto on April 25.
