About the Author

Heda Segvic (1957-2003) was associate professor of philosophy at the University of Pittsburgh.


"Whatever their state of completion, Segvic's papers shed new light on ancient texts and offer new perspectives on practical rationality. They also give those of us who did not know Segvic an appreciation of the loss that we all suffered when illness and then death prevented her from developing and sharing her many insights."--Jyl Gentzler, POLIS
