Graham Harman printed a memorial a few days ago, and the sad news is now officially on the SUNY Stony Brook web page.
We just wanted to join Graham in expressing our condolences to all of the many people who take sustenance from Hugh Silverman's life and work.
In addition to all of his books, translations, and edited series, Professor Sivlerman's work with the International Association for Philosophy and Literature was indefatigable. In all of these respects, he was one key figures that over the past thirty-five years has helped philosophy move out of the disciplinary confines that often still hinder it. All of us who think that philosophy must take into account wisdom from literature broadly construed (and vice versa) remain in Silverman's debt.
