It is with disbelief that I read the news that Middlesex University considers closing down its Philosophy Department. Shocked as I am, I can only tell you that as a philosopher teaching and doing research in both the Netherlands and Belgium I have the biggest respect for this department and its members: their publications (including the online material on Cahiers pour l’analyse) have proved not only to be inspiring but also orientated a large part of my research.
I would like to ask you to keep Philosophy at Middlesex.
