A pretty significant figure in UK politics. Not sure if all y'all furriners have heard much about her.

BTW, Edmund Gettier (1927-2021) | Daily Nous died last month.

He was famous for being a problem: https://plato.stanford.edu/entries/k...ysis/#GettProb

From the linkAs one commenter noted in an essay about the Gettier problem, “If you added up the number of times that this article has been discussed or cited in the literature (thousands of times), and divided that by the number of words in the article (approximately 930), the resulting quotient would be larger than the quotient for any other work of philosophy ever published.”

Michael Collins, at the age of 90.

Every human being apart from Michael Collins is within the frame of this photo..



Arguably even humans not born when it was taken in 1969 — although some of us might have some atoms from dust and meteorites that have arrived since.
