Abstract

98 the plur alist 15 : 1 2020 Erin McKenna University of Oregon John McDermott will be missed personally by many of us. Even more, though, the profession of philosophy has lost a strong voice for pluralism. McDermott worked tirelessly on behalf of voices that were not being heard. He did this by getting out-of-print works back into the hands of scholars, but he also did this by supporting many people in our Society (and beyond) as they searched for jobs and sought tenure and promotion in a system that does not always recognize the work done in the American philosophical tra- dition. He reviewed articles and manuscripts and wrote countless blurbs for the backs of books. He did this even when he disagreed with the particulars of other people’s work. I know that when I had a department head who told me I shouldn’t try to make a career out of writing on women and animals, McDermott was there to encourage me to do just that. He embodied the spirit of American Philosophy through his generosity, his pluralistic commit- ments, and his dedication to the ongoing task of putting philosophy to work in people’s lives.
