I’m sad to hear that Solomon Feferman, an intellectual hero of mine, has died.

There is a very warm tribute here from the Stanford philosophy department.

    What a great picture. ” Arithmetization….” is a brilliant and important paper. And has a special place in my heart. (Not that “Transfinite recursive progressions…” was bad; or “useful type-free theories… “…. )
    I only met him once, decades ago. He was a thoroughly nice man (as many testify) and had a wonderful talent for coordinating the technical details with a bigger picture.

    There are several photos of him (one seldom seen), a brief bio, and a quotation in
    [also Stanford’s Suppes and Hintikka, both of whom died recently]
