In Memoriam: Waheed Hussain

Published on

It is with sadness that I relay the news of the passing of Professor Waheed Hussain.

Many of us knew Waheed from SBE, and still more knew him as the author of thoughtful articles and book reviews in publications including BEQ, the Business Ethics Journal Review, Economics & Philosophy, and the Journal of Business Ethics . . . to name but a few.

Waheed was an Associate Professor in the Department of Philosophy at the University of Toronto Scarborough, and in the Graduate Department of Philosophy at the University of Toronto.  He earned his PhD in Philosophy from Harvard University, and taught at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania from 2004 to 2014.  He graduated summa cum laude in philosophy from Princeton University, and was the Laurance S. Rockefeller Visiting Faculty Fellow there in the 2013-2014 academic year.
