Henry Webb Johnstone Jr.: 22 February 1920-18 February 2000

Henry Webb Johnstone Jr.: 22 February 1920-18 February 2000 J S P Henry Webb Johnstone Jr. 22 February 1920­18 February 2000 Henry W. Johnstone Jr. died on 18 February 2000, just before his eightieth birthday, after a difficult and courageous struggle with Parkinson's disease. He died as he had lived--writing, editing, reading his journals, and awaiting, as he had in each of the past fifty years, the proofs of his last article. And he did this although he could no longer stand or even swallow without the assistance of his loving wife, Margery. Henry attended the Hill School; in 1942 he earned a B.S. in Philosophy from Haverford College; after military service he earned first an M.A. and then a Ph.D. in Philosophy from Harvard University in 1947 and 1950, respectively. Unlike many of his generation, he was solidly trained in the central issues of analytic philosophy and would make use of that training all his life; his dissertation, written under Henry Aiken, was A Grammar of the Sense-Datum Language. Subsequently he would study classics at Bryn Mawr College, earning an M.A. in 1979. He taught first at Williams College (1948­52) and then at The Pennsylvania State University where he taught well past his "retirement" in 1984. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png The Journal of Speculative Philosophy Penn State University Press

Abstract

J S P Henry Webb Johnstone Jr. 22 February 1920­18 February 2000 Henry W. Johnstone Jr. died on 18 February 2000, just before his eightieth birthday, after a difficult and courageous struggle with Parkinson's disease. He died as he had lived--writing, editing, reading his journals, and awaiting, as he had in each of the past fifty years, the proofs of his last article. And he did this although he could no longer stand or even swallow without the assistance of his loving wife, Margery. Henry attended the Hill School; in 1942 he earned a B.S. in Philosophy from Haverford College; after military service he earned first an M.A. and then a Ph.D. in Philosophy from Harvard University in 1947 and 1950, respectively. Unlike many of his generation, he was solidly trained in the central issues of analytic philosophy and would make use of that training all his life; his dissertation, written under Henry Aiken, was A Grammar of the Sense-Datum Language. Subsequently he would study classics at Bryn Mawr College, earning an M.A. in 1979. He taught first at Williams College (1948­52) and then at The Pennsylvania State University where he taught well past his "retirement" in 1984.
