Notice> Steven Collins (1951-2018)

Charles Hallisey's picture
I write, with a shock, sadness, and grief beyond any words that I know, to pass on the news that Steven Collins has died suddenly in New Zealand, where he had just gone to teach a special series of seminars.
 
Steven Collins was many things to many of us.  He was, of course, Chester D. Tripp Professor in the Humanities in the Department of South Asian Languages and Civilization at the University of Chicago.
But to me, he was, above all, my friend.
 
The Buddha was right when he said that life is uncertain, death is certain,
 
but Marx was also right when he said that death is hard for the living,
