Minor academic, fails WP:PROF. Faculty at a minor school (graduate program is unranked). Sole book is from a minor publisher. Has a book forthcoming from Oxford, but that's not enough to for notability. Prod declined. Hairhorn (talk) 01:33, 14 June 2012 (UTC)

Keep -- full professor and director of ethics center at a large Research 1 school (Michigan State is not a minor school). The "unranked" is in one survey, for comparison choosing all 3s for weight on [1] puts MSU around 40, one step above Yale. Oxford book is appearing this year, so it's not a crystal ball but a reliable indication that one of the top presses in the world finds his work notable. -- Michael Scott Cuthbert (talk) 16:27, 15 June 2012 (UTC)

  • Keep Gscholar [2] makes it clear he has the "several highly-cited works" -- add the book and he's in. And really, when you call Michegan's grad program unranked, you need to start slowing down a bit. EEng (talk) 02:14, 21 June 2012 (UTC)
It is unranked on the main ranking used. Hairhorn (talk) 02:18, 21 June 2012 (UTC)
It's I who need to slow down, apparently. I was thinking of U. of Mich. -- this guy's at Mich. State U. (I even misspelled Michigan.), so you're right about the ranking. But my overall evaluation stands. (I would never base it on the ranking of the subject's institution anyway -- Post did important work while teaching high school math.) EEng (talk) 04:22, 21 June 2012 (UTC)
I tend to agree; I mention it because wp:prof alludes to the quality of the institution, although in the vaguest possible terms. Hairhorn (talk) 12:12, 21 June 2012 (UTC)
