In Memoriam

On April 7, 2014, the Philosophy Department lost a very dear friend, teacher, and colleague, Professor Anthony Brueckner. Tony spent the bulk of his illustrious career here at UCSB, where he taught since 1988. An extremely careful and tenacious thinker, Tony was also humble, gentle, and kind. Generous with his time, he trained a large number of students over the years. He inspired his students, his colleagues, and his peers in philosophy. Tony was, and is, greatly admired by all who had the distinct privilege of working with him. He taught us and he made us smile. We will miss him.

New Hire

We are pleased to announce that Sonny Elizondo (PhD UCLA) will join our department as an Assistant Professor this fall. Professor Elizondo specializes in Ethics and Kant's Practical Philosophy.
