    So sorry to hear this. Norm , if you’re listening – Point of No Return (profiled on Normblog) wishes you a speedy and full recovery.

    I have been reading Professor Norman Geras for a number of years and he is one of the very few that I have learned from. He belongs to the company of Isaiah Berlin.

    I hope he recovers fully.

    Thanks for giving us an update of his condition.
