There is 1 comment on Joachim Maître Taught at BU for 30 Years

  1. Professor Maître taught all of my favorite courses at Boston University. I credit him with my ability to critically analyze information, separate fact from opinion, and formulate independent thoughts from articles. And largely for my numerous successes in life since graduating.

    During class, he pushed many of us outside of our comfort zone, guiding our education with a disciplined approach to learning and a dry sense of humor that kept us engaged. Outside of class he was the archetype of the witty German intellectual.

    You will be missed, Professor.
