I was deeply disturbed to learn of the decision to terminate the philosophy program at Middlesex University, one of widely recognized excellence and surely a source of enrichment for students and for the intellectual environment of the University generally. I hope very much that this unfortunate decision will be reversed, for the sake of the university, the intellectual life of the UK, and not least the future of this ancient and indispensable discipline worldwide.
