Remembering Michael Meyer, the enigmatic philosophy professor who mentored so many students

 

Michael Meyer passed away this past summer. Michael was a dedicated educator who taught thousands of students over the course of his career. Every philosophy major in the past thirty years took his courses – particularly introduction to philosophy and ancient philosophy. Michael had an incredible range and depth of knowledge. He taught every course that is required for the Philosophy major at one time or another. Michael also served as the department undergraduate advisor and program director for three decades, recruiting, guiding and mentoring students though the program. He was enormously popular with students and an integral part of the program’s intellectual life – giving talks to the philosophy club and leading student outings. Michael loved to talk about ideas and about teaching with his colleagues, and alumni would often come back to the department to spend time with him. His impact on his students, the department, and his colleagues was immense. He will be terribly missed.

A reception to remember Prof. Meyer and reflect on his time at Northeastern will be held on Wednesday, October 24, 2018 at 5:00pm in 909 Renaissance Park (1135 Tremont Street, Boston, MA, 02120). All Alumni are invited to attend. Please RSVP to Katie Molongoski at k.molongoski@northeastern.edu
