Philosopher Sir Michael Dummett Is Dead

I've read a fair bit of his stuff, and never got what he was talking about, even though I was trained in the shit and sympathetic to some of the broader thrusts of his thinking (truth value gaps and etc.).  Probably the worst writer among 20th Century English Analytics.  Nevertheless, he is definitely dead, and I suppose we should note the fact.
