The philosopher Páll Skúlason died on the last day of the Icelandic winter, Wednesday 22 April 2015 at the National Hospital of Iceland. Páll who was diagnosed with leukemia in the Fall of 2012 fought a valient battle against a cruel disease with great serenity, supported by family and friends.

Páll was determined to use whatever time was left to him to make his works available to the general public. In the past three years he managed, with the help of coworkers from the field of philosophy, to publish six books. In addition he completed two manuscripts which will be published in the coming months. He thought, wrote and was determined to enjoy life until the very end.

Páll´s family will continue to maintain this website in his memory. In his philosophy, Páll strove to touch people´s lives and get us all to reflect on our prejudices and seek ways to improve our world. This website will make Páll´s writings and reflections available and give voice to his message about the power of thought in human life.
