Jerry Fodor RIP 1935 – 2017

I met him in New York some time before interviewing him for the End Times series. I was doing a Beckett talk at Rutgers and on a whim dropped him a line and said I’d be passing through NY on my way home and would he like to meet up. He straight away replied and we had a coffee in the Lincoln Centre and talked opera and philosophy. I was nervous because he was known to be a no-nonsense ball-breaker. Well, we chatted away and it was great. He was smart and hilarious. And a few months later I asked him to do an interview for 3:AM and he did. Here it is. One of the giants.
