In Memoriam - Professor Emeritus John Tienson

It is with deep sadness that we inform the University of Memphis community, and the wider philosophical profession, that Professor Emeritus John Tienson passed away on November 10, 2018. A trusted and admired colleague, teacher, and researcher, Professor Tienson was an irreplaceable philosophical mind, interlocutor, and collaborator at Memphis and beyond. We, his colleagues, staff, and students, will miss him greatly.

A memorial service will be held for Professor Tienson in Memphis on Saturday, December 15, 2018. (Time and location to come soon.) The Philosophy Department at The University of Memphis, his home department for many years, will hold a colloquium in honor of his work in the spring of 2020.
