Scholarly profile of Jonathan Trejo-Mathys (1979‒2014)

On November 28, 2014, Jonathan Trejo-Mathys died after a period of suffering from ‒ and couragously figthing against ‒ a very aggressive form of cancer. We mourn the loss of an excellent, young philosopher and a former fellow who grew on us during his stay at the Institute.
