Gordon on Cohen, R.I.P.

David Gordon has a nice tribute to recently-deceased philosopher G.A. Cohen. Writes Gordon: Although he was a Marxist, he took libertarian ideas with great seriousness; and his efforts to come to grips with the self-ownership principle merit careful study. I rate him one of the best philosophers of the past fifty years. He was extraordinarily sharp in argument but, at least judged by the few times I was in touch with him, warm and generous. He was also extremely funny. I will miss Jerry Cohen.”

Others are not so charitable.
