ARNER, Douglas "Doug"
Douglas "Doug" Arner was a professor emeritus of philosophy who retired from ASU in June 1987 after 28 years of service to the university. Dr. Arner earned his master's and doctoral degrees in philosophy at the University of Michigan, and he taught at the University of Michigan and Princeton University before joining ASU's Department of Psychology and Philosophy in 1959 as an associate professor. He helped establish the current Department of Philosophy. Dr. Arner was promoted to full professor in 1964 and served as department chair from 1969-1972. In 1969, Professor Arner presented a colloquium titled "Philosophy, Science and Man" at numerous college campuses in California. It was reported that "he believed that, in times to come, mankind may not be afflicted with so much violence and deceit." He said that "perhaps it is not folly to look forward to a time when differences among men can be resolved peaceably." Arner was respected and liked by colleagues and students. He guided the department through the difficult days of the Vietnam War, vigorously defending the rights of faculty and students to express their views while also striving to maintain the integrity of the education the department delivered. Barbara COLBY, who served as a teaching assistant for Arner in the 1970s, remembers him as being "the personification of a scholar and a gentleman. His dedication to the themes of justice and fairness expressed in his clear and eloquent phrases caught the attention of students at a time when students were more apt to be interested in campus life than in studying philosophy." Dr. Arner died in August 7, 2006, from complications following a stroke. He was living at Blue Jay, California, and was 79 at the time of his death. Doug was survived by his son, John ARNER.
