Dr Roger Sworder, Platonist and Romantic, introduced me and so many others to the Perennial Philosophy of the West: a spiritual knowledge and wisdom that he beloved as I do, is essential to our humanity. Roger was an inspired teacher in a special and brilliant Department at BCAE that basically changed my life and inspired me to become a teacher. Roger's inspiration still comes through in my teaching and I feel that my VCE students are also benefitting from the fountain of his wisdom. He is now ferried across to the Golden Land which he loved to inhabit in his mind and imagination in the mundane world he has now transcended. I'll never forget him.

I was saddened to hear of the passing of Roger. It was such a privilege to have been a student in his fascinating, sparkling, engaging Literature classes. His lectures were the highlight of my time at uni. My condolences to his family , friends and the Latrobe community.

Roger Sworder, was a man who lived by his principles, a man of great learning and insight who always had time for anyone from any walk of life. He was a mentor, an inspiration and a confidante and man whose wisdom and mind we will not see again. Many of us owe so much to his teaching, his wisdom and his friendship over the years. Roger paved the road that I have only just begun my journey onhe was, is loved and will be missed. Sic transit gloria mundi!
