Past Contributing Subject Editors

Rob Clifton (b. 1964, d. 2002), served 1997–2000.
Founding subject editor for philosophy of physics at the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy. He served from April 1997 to December 2000, specializing in entries on quantum theory. Rob not only organized the topics on quantum theory, but also commissioned approximately 25 entries. Rob was one of the first philosophers to recognize the worth of the Encyclopedia and he helped set our exacting editorial standards. Rob's energy and example attracted the best scholars to the Editorial Board. His love of philosophy and commitment to rigor of thought inspired every author he commissioned and is reflected in every article he edited.
Peter Simons, served 1997–2001.
Originally a consulting editor, and then a founding subject editor for metaphysics at the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy. Peter served from April 1997 to December 2001, primarily helping to create the list of 80 topics in Metaphysics, and offering advice and suggestions about authors. We have benefited a lot from the time, effort and insight he gave to the encyclopedia.
John Burgess, served 1997–2003.
John Burgess was the founding subject editor for entries on Classical Logic. John helped to organize the entries for this subject, refereed the entries on classical logic, first-order model theory, infinitary logic, model theory, set theory, and the mathematics of Boolean algebra.
