Set in 10 on 12.5 pt Photina by Toppan Best-set Premedia Limited Printed in Singapore 01 2010 Philip L. Quinn (1940– 2 004) The second edition of A Companion to Philosophy of Religion is dedicated with great affec- tion and appreciation to the senior editor of the fi rst edition: Philip L. Quinn. Quinn ’ s approach and commitment to philosophy of religion was capacious and exciting. While he was open to alternative, experimental methods and conclusions in the philosophy of religion, he was exacting in seeking clarity and rigor. Trained in physics as well as philosophy, Quinn also made vital contributions to philosophy of science. In the phi- losophy of religion, his essays, lectures, and reviews were deeply and widely infl uential. A good introduction to this work is the collection of many of his papers in E ssays in the Philosophy of Religion , edited by Christian B. Miller. He also authored a book, D ivine Commands and Moral Requirements, now a classic contribution to debate about religion and ethics. More than a great scholar, Quinn’ s service to the profession was extensive. He generously contributed his time and energy to the American Philosophical Association; he was editor of the journal F aith and Philosophy from 1990 to 1995; and he served as a reviewer for 20 other journals in philosophy and for 27 presses, including Wiley - Blackwell. Each year, when the APA recognizes someone ’ s service to philosophy and philosophers, they do so by awarding the “ Quinn Prize ” in honor of Philip L. Quinn.
