Dr. Robert Solomon, 1942-2007

Sad news from Austin: Dr. Bob Solomon, UT philosophy professor and all-around badass, died from heart failure in the Zurich airport on January 2. The Statesman and Daily Texan ran obituaries (the Texan includes a great photo of a young Bob), and Matt posted a personal recollection to the Austinist.

I took three semesters with Dr. Solomon, including his famous “Existentialism” class. Below are doodles from my notes, the second of which was copied directly from Bob’s blackboard drawing, if I remember correctly. Leslie and I will be pouring out a Shiner for him.

The Gods

Kierkegaard and God
