NAME: Steven K. Strange (1950-2009)
IN MEMORIAM: Steven was Associate Professor of Philosophy at Emory University, where he had taught since 1990. He received his BA from Rice University in 1972 and Ph.D. from the University of Texas at Austin in 1981. He edited Stoicism: Traditions and Transformations with Jack Zupko, (Cambridge University Press, 2004) and published many articles that we all know well, including:

"Porphyry and Plotinus’ Metaphysics", in George Karamanolis and Anne Sheppard, eds., Studies on Porphyry, Bulletin of the Institute of Classical Studies Supplementary, Volume 98 (2007), 17-34.

"Proclus and the Ancients", in Kevin Corrigan and John B. Turner, eds., Platonisms: Ancient, Modern, and Postmodern (Brill, 2007), 97-108.

"Plotinus on the Nature of Eternity and Time" in Lawrence Schrenk, ed., Aristotle in Late Antiquity, (Catholic University of America Press, 1994), 22-53.

When he died, he was working on a translation and commentary of Enneads VI.4.-5 with Eyjólfur Emilsson. Steve was only 59. He will be remembered as a careful, conscientious scholar and a good man with whom one could enjoy food, wine, and excellent conversation. He’ll be missed.
