British Academy

Stephan Körner was one of the leading late twentieth-century British philosophers whose work ranged widely from the philosophy of science and mathematics to that of ethics, law and politics. Born in Czechoslovakia, he fled to England after the Nazi invasion of 1939 and later served in the Czech army. Körner resumed his academic career after demobilization and held Chairs of Philosophy at the Universities of Bristol, Yale and Graz. Two of his books reached a wide non-specialist readership – Kant (1955) and What is Philosophy? (1969) – and he was elected Fellow of the British Academy in 1967. Obituary by John Shepherdson FBA.
