R.I.P. D.Z.P.

Via Leiter, I hear that D.Z. Phillips has died. Professor Phillips was a major figure in Wittgenstein and the philosophy of religion. His book Philosophy's Cool Place is essential reading for those interested in the particular sense in which Wittgenstein's conception of philosophy was "quietist." Perhaps he is now in a cool place of his own. If so, cool!
