losophers in the United Kingdom,"
he says.
He will study and travel in Eng-
land and on the continent. Sobel's
transportation, tuition, books and
incidentals are paid under terms
of the Fulbright grant.
Choice Comes Late
Sobel, 28 years old, did not
choose philosophy as his field until.
1955.
A native Chicagoan, he spent his
undergraduate years, (1947-51) at
the University of Illinois where he
studied commerce and law. Upon
graduation he entered the Air
Force on an ROTC commission.
Stationed at Scott Air Force
Base, Ill., Sobel explained that he
was listed as a utilities officer in
charge of hall and washroom
maintenance.
Decided After Service
"It wasn't until I got out of the
service that I decided to go back
to school," he said, "but at that
time philosophy didn't interest me
as much as law."
"I wanted to get a law degree
with work in the social sciences,
so I could eventually teach in a
law school."
Returning to school, he acquired'

a master's degree in philosophy,
with the intention of taking up the
teaching of courses in legal phi-
losophy and jurisprudence. It was
not until 1954 when he attended
the University of Chicago for an-
other year of law that Sobel's in-
terest began to switch to philos-
ophy.
Lost Interest
"I left the law after losing in.
terest in legal problems."
"In studying the law," he said,
"your object is, at least in part,
to master a large mass of detail
as one would if he were studying
butterflies."
