Re: [xmca] :-(( The Passing of Clifford Geertz

Very sad, a great loss to us all.

I knew him a bit when I was a student at Chicago. Kind to students,
very thoughtful and unhurried, with a droll and wonderful sense of
humor. His early work influenced me a lot. Now it's a finished oeuvre
and I have some catching up to do. He was, also, along with Bruner,
one of the great prose stylists of the human sciences, and a good, if
inimitable, model for students.

Thank you, Cliff!
