This has been done because the article seems to be about a person, group of people, band, club, company or website, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is notable. If you can indicate why Richard Brandt is really notable, I advise you to edit the article promptly, and also put a note on Talk:Richard Brandt. An admin should check for such edits before deleting the article. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this. Please read our criteria for speedy deletion, particularly item 7 under Articles. You might also want to read our general biography criteria. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself. To contest the tagging and request that admins should wait a while for you to assert his/her/their notability, please affix the template {{hangon}} to the page, and then immediately add such an assertion.

Brandt is an important figure, particularly in meta-ethics. Allan Gibbard, a notable expressivist, says 'it was Richard Brandt who, more than anyone else, led me to my present understanding of ethical theory.' There are 7 references to Brandt in the Blackwell Guide to Ethical Theory. Will add some of this info to the article when I get a chance.FlexibleSceptic (talk) 20:44, 1 June 2008 (UTC)
