Honouring Professor Katherine Hawley

By | Uncategorised | No Comments

Members of the Mind Association Executive Committee and the Editors of MIND were deeply saddened to learn that Katherine Hawley, Professor of Philosophy at the University of St. Andrews, has died. Katherine was a valued elected member of the Executive from 2013 to 2015, and was an invited symposiast at the 2019 Joint Session of the Aristotelian Society and the Mind Association. She was recently asked to be a future President of the Mind Association but, unfortunately, had to decline due to her ill health. Members of the Executive recall Katherine’s contributions to its discussions – always level-headed, always authoritative, and always delivered in good humour. While holding a distinguished standing within the profession, Katherine was a person in whose company it was very easy to feel at ease. She will be missed.

As a tribute to Katherine’s contributions to the Mind Association and to the philosophical community more generally MIND are pleased to make available the articles that she published in the journal. Links to the articles can be found here:
