Domenico Parisi has left us. We, friends and colleagues of him, will miss his sympathy, his wit, his intelligence, his affection. The science of the mind will miss one of the greatest scholars. From studies on language, to artificial intelligence, neural networks, artificial life, Domenico has been able better than anyone else to integrate knowledge, synthesis skills, vision of the future.He has always been an innovator, and many things that are now the baggage of a cognitive scientist, are the result of his research and foresight. For us, who are proud to have been his friends, Domenico will forever remain the person able to move us from the convictions on which we sat comfortably, to push us to think for ourselves and to try to make the world where we live more intelligible. Thanks Domenico.
