Throughout the second half of the twentieth century, Michael Dummett was a powerful figure in British philosophy and in later years its most distinguished and authoritative practitioner, with tremendous international standing. His work spanned philosophy of mathematics, formal logic, philosophy of language, history of philosophy, and metaphysics. He also played an important role in combatting racism in Britain, and when he was knighted, in the 1999 New Year’s Honours, it was ‘for services to Philosophy and to Racial Justice’.
