Rudolf Arnheim, 1904-2007, RIP

I am not typically an obituaries reader, but I stumbled across them in the Ann Arbor News this evening. Talk about coincidence (or, given Arnheim’s interests in Jung, “synchronicity“) I learned that Rudolf Arnheim died over this weekend. He was 102 years old, and (of all places!) he died in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

I only know Arnheim’s work indirectly, through writers like Molly Bang and Ann Wysocki. They make a good point that he’s someone worth reading. But I have to say, I’m fascinated by the fact that this guy lived to 102 years old and he was a local! Go figure!
