I was abroad on 10 July 2018 when Michael's obituary was published in The Times and didn't see it, or I would have posted something sooner. Not having seen him for many years, after dementia took its toll, and thinking about him this week, while re-reading an article on clinical trials that he had published in the Proceedings of the Aristotelian Society (1983;57:207), I found this website. Michael was a brilliant philosopher, at home equally in medical philosophy, the philosophy of science, including quantum mechanics, and the ideas of classical philosophers. I will never forget how his eyes would light up in anticipation of stimulating conversation when I or any of his other colleagues in Green College, Oxford, came to sit with him at the lunch table. Reading his work reminds me of just how stimulating those conversations could be.
