In Memoriam: Professor Emeritus Jerry Needleman

December 7, 2022

I am greatly saddened to report the passing away of our colleague Jerry Needleman. An extraordinary philosopher of religion, a fabulous teacher and a sublime human being, Jerry inaugurated the Philosophy and Religion program at SFSU, authored numerous life-changing books and essays on philosophy and spirituality and taught our community up to the last year of his life. We are grateful for his presence and manifold contributions and mourn his departure. May he rest in peace.
