Whoa. I only ran into him a couple of times while at UCI, but still...damn. That's just awful.

What you share here explains much--in a very good way--that I admire about your readings of texts that you've posted here.

Sometimes, we learn more from our presumed adversaries than we are at first willing to admit.

RIP, indeed. And thanks for this. He sounds like he was a hell of a teacher.

I'm sorry about your friend.

Grad at UCR

I never had a class with him, but in my brief interactions he seemed like a really sharp and bright person. On the one hand, this remembrance has an edge to it, but I think you illustrate your overall point very well that sometimes dialectical arguments or personal dislikes can lead us to really surprising realizations. And in your highlighting his harshness, you highlight what was also most poignant about him: thoughtful provocation. I get it. Rest in peace Professor Barrett.

I understand how you feel. His lectures were kind of imposed to make one believe everything he knows... but that was the goal. Regardless of how strict or how off he might have seemed he was a person who was for change. He indeed was a stupendous arguer and would allow the arguments of others only to shoot down their argument with his. He shall forever be missed.
