We are deeply sorry to report the death of Fabian Dorsch, Associate Research Professor at the Philosophy Department of the University of Fribourg, and a dear colleague and friend. Fabian was a bright philosopher and we have been very lucky to have him over many years working with us in many projects, events, and meetings, such as the IV Mediterranean Congress of Aesthetics in 2011, the ESA executive committee, or the last workshop on aesthetic Value, in May 2016. Currently, he was also a member of our project “Aesthetic value and its relationship to other values in appreciative practice”. This is a great loss to all of us and the whole philosophy community. He is survived by his wife Evgenia and his son, Maxim. We send our deepest condolences to them.
