Robert, my deepest condolences.
When I lost my friend and mentor Larry Becker this time last year, I was gutted.
The mentor-friend is unique, and sacred.
I will hold your loss in my heart this evening.
It is with great sadness that I learned that my friend and mentor Jaegwon Kim passed away Wednesday evening. Aside from being a paragon of clear philosophical thought and writing, he was one of the kindest, most decent humans I've ever known. I owe him more than I can say.
