William Alston died today, September 13, in Jamesville, NY from pancreatic cancer. Alston was well known in epistemology circles. Many of his works can be found online. Some notables:
Sellars and the "Myth of the Given"
Perception and Conception
What Is Naturalism, that We Should Be Mindful of It?
Two Cheers for Mystery!
I have very different philosophical presuppositions from Alston, but we are now the poorer for lacking him. Many prayers for him, his friends, and his family.
