News and Announcements

The Editorial Cabinet of SORITES is sad to report the untimely death of Prof. Miguel Sanchez-Mazas, Editor of THEORIA (Spain), who passed away on Saturday the 6th of May 1995, because of a heart failure. Miguel Sanchez-Mazas had been born in Peschiera, Italy, in 1925. His main fields of research were philosophy, the theory of law, mathematics and logic. His political activities lead to his being compelled to become an exile in Switzerland for more than two decades -- despite the fact that his father had been a minister under Franco's regime. As a Leibniz scholar, a worker in the field of deontic and juridical logic, an outstanding academic and a promoter of analytical philosophy in Spain, Miguel Sanchez-Mazas will be remembered with mourning, gratitude and affection by a great many people in many countries where his work came to be known and appreciated.

Analytic Mailing List

ANALYTIC is a public and moderated mailing list for the discussion of analytic philosophical thought, its history, its literature, and other topics of related interest. The criteria applied for the moderation of the list are little more than a check for common courtesy and the rules of `nettiquette' (usual InterNet conventions as to what to post and how to post it). The intended audience is anyone who is well acquainted with at least a few of the basic philosophical writings in the analytic tradition. Professors and students alike are welcome, as are both professionals and amateurs. The intent is to provide a forum for informal dicussions and exchanges of resources.
