Bl. Ramon Llull.

SAINT OF THE DAY is the Blessed Ramon Llull. Catalan poet, philosopher, novelist and soldier. More here, here and here

Recently found out that I've passed all my exams, so that's nice.

Just a little note to record the retirement (simultaneously) of several men who have collectively taught me a great deal of, and about, philosophy. In particular the man who has taught me everything I know of German Idealism.

Professor Sir Stuart Hampshire, whose 'debonair English rationality enabled him to carry off extraordinary diplomatic feats' has passed on. There are obituaries here, and there, and here too.
