Bernard Linsky Named Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada

Department of Philosophy Faculty member, Professor Bernard Linsky, named Royal Society Fellow

11 September 2014

We are pleased to announce that Dr. Bernard Linsky has been named a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada.

The Royal Society of Canada (RSC) was established under an Act of Parliament in 1882 as the senior Canadian collegium of distinguished scholars, artists and scientists.

Bernard Linsky is one of the world's foremost historians of the foundations of mathematical logic in the

early 20th century. His incisive analyses have led to an extensive reconsideration of the received view of the way logic has impacted mathematics and philosophy. His innovative manuscript research has also opened, for the first time, essential works in the history of mathematical logic to direct study by anyone versed in modern logic.

Dr. Linsky has been with the Department of Philosophy since 1975 and continues to teach both undergraduate courses and graduate seminars for our department.

Congratulations, Bernie!
