AbnerWe are sorry to hear of the passing of Dr. Abner Shimony, noted American physicist and philosopher of science.

Having earned a doctorate in philosophy from Yale University and a doctorate of physics from Princeton University, Dr. Shimony was a professor emeritus at Boston University and leaves behind a lifetime of work investigating the connections between physics and philosophy.
