RECALLING LATE MEMBERS
OF THE "DEMOCRACY OF THE INTELLECT"

During my life as an academic (both as student and as faculty) I have been privileged to know some individuals who, in Jacob's Bronowski's phrase, I think were members of the "democracy of the intellect". This informal organization is composed of members who value disinterested discussion as the primary purpose of higher education, and who understand that the central concept of academic freedom (for both students and faculty) is the right to be evaluated on academic performance, rather than conformity with a particular school of thought. This section contains obituaries on some of these individuals. Their numbers, in my view, are diminishing as universities, because of various pressures, are moving away from being devoted to the search for truth toward the search for comfort.

  1. Remembering Phil Rushton's Contribution To Academic Freedom (1943-2012)
  2. Wolfram Boucsein (1944-2012): A scholar and an experimental (and applied) psychophysiologist
  3. On Herb Kimmel (1927-2012) as an exemplar of the Pavlovian Society's motto 'observation and observation'
  4. David Lykken (1928-2006): A Polemicist Devoted to the Truth both in Research and Graduate Teaching
  5. Harvey Shulman (1945 - 2005), Concordia University

  6. Norman Endler (1931-2003). A courageous contributor to knowledge of the nature depression at the price of ptentially damaging his own academic reputation.
  7. Pavlovian George Windholtz (1931-2002): An exemplar of scholarly "observation and observation" and a critical contributor to psychology, and hence to behavioral neuroscience
  8. A Pavlovian in Spirit: Richard Annells Champion (1925-1999)
  9. Psychology's most visible and controversial figure from fifties to the nineties: Han Eysenck (1916-1997)
  10. Some thoughts on the teaching contributions of a reflective experimental psychologist: J.D. "Peter" Keehn (1925-95)
  11. Roger Myers (1906-85): A clinical psychologist transforms psychology department from a bunch of clinicians into a research power-house of experimental psychologists
