Today we received sad news of the passing of Professor John Forrester, one of the leading historians of psychoanalysis. The University of Cambridge Department of History and Philosophy of Science has posted a thoughtful obituary by Simon Schaffer, also published in The Independent (see Professor John Forrester: Philosopher and historian widely celebrated for his work on Sigmund Freud and much-loved as an inspiring teacher).

  1. There was also a new obituary posted today in The Guardian: http://www.theguardian.com/books/2015/dec/03/john-forrester?CMP=share_btn_tw You are missed, dear John.
