Derek Parfit

In 2017 we lost a great philosopher. Derek Antony Parfit, FBA was a British philosopher who specialised in personal identity, rationality, and ethics. He is widely considered one of the most important and influential moral philosophers of the late 20th and early 21st centuries.

Here is a link to a 2011 New Yorker piece about him and his work.

And here is his obituary from The Guardian.
