Basil Mitchell: 1917-2011

Philosopher Basil Mitchell passed away this summer.

wp9f9cb77e_05I just learned from The Prosblogion that Basil Mitchell passed away this summer. I first encountered Mitchell in the mid-90s (that’s 1990s for you youngsters out there) as a contributor to Antony Flew’s excellent New Essays in Philosophical Theology. Flew’s book was deeply important to my intellectual development and I recall Mitchell as a respondent to Flew’s highly influential “Theology and Falsification.”

The write up at The Prosblogion is worth the read.
