Oh no! It sounds like Ken Taylor passed away. I learned so much from him. He was always so energetic about doing philosophy, eager to grapple with arguments, infectious in his enthusiasm for following ideas out, and a tremendous interlocutor on nearly any subject.

Ken was a visiting professor at UNC when I was first on the job market and was a good friend as well as a treasured source of sanity, decency, and common sense — and a gifted philosopher. I admired him greatly and will think of him often.

We are sorry for the loss. We were so happy to host the show, and experience the joy and intelligence that Ken Taylor brought to the philosophical stage. https://t.co/3mRl3PGPgT

“When I was little we went to the movies all the time…We loved musicals. For the longest time I thought that when you finally fell in love you would hear an orchestra playing in the sky and you would spontaneously break into song.” -Ken Taylor https://t.co/iEVhWWQ10y

Very sad to hear my wayback @stanford colleague Ken Taylor of the Philosophy Department, longtime @stanfordsymsys director, and cofounder of the popular “Philosophy Talk” radio show, has just passed away unexpectedly. His wisdom & humor will be missed https://t.co/mIhxmQk01W
