Note: NEW material is highlighted

The following "academic family tree", listing Hector-Neri Castañeda's  Ph.D. students, their students (i.e., Castañeda's "grandstudents"), etc., is, no doubt, an incomplete and inaccurate list. Anyone reading this document is encouraged to send corrections and/or additional information to the compiler.

Hector-Neri Castañeda  wrote his Ph.D. dissertation in philosophy, "The Logical Structure of Moral Reasoning", under the direction of Wilfrid Sellars  at the University of Minnesota, graduating in June 1954.gif (Interestingly, the family tree stops with Sellars,  since Sellars's highest academic degree was not a Ph.D., but an M.A. in philosophy from State University of New York at Buffalo, under the direction of Marvin Farber.  See Sellars  1975 for details.)gif

Following is a chronological list of Castañeda's  Ph.D. students, his grandstudents, his great-grandstudents, and, in at least one case, his great-great-grandstudent(!); dates given are those of graduation.
