Obituary: Peter Geach
Philosopher who was somewhat overshadowed by his wife, but who argued that God's existence is logical
PETER GEACH, who has died aged 97, was a formidable logician and happened to be married to one of the 20th Century's leading English-language philosophers, Elizabeth Anscombe.
In a way this meant he was overshadowed. He did, though, have a strong philosophical life of his own, and without the thousands of hours of discussion that Elizabeth Anscombe had with him, her philosophy would not have attained the eminence it did.
Peter Geach always had sharp teeth in an argument and, the harder the opposition, the harder he bit.
