Objet: Philosophy at Mdx University

Dear Colleagues,

I have learnt of the project of your university to terminate all Philosophy programmes.
In view of the excellent reputation and achievements of the research and teaching in philosophy of Middlesex University, this project is absolutely incomprehensible.

I recently had the opportunity, while attending a Colloquium in London organized by my Middlesex colleagues, of directly verifying by myself the excellency and high international recognition of your programmes in philosophy.

There is no doubt that the intended closure would do a great damage to the reputation of your University as a whole.

May I then ask you to reconsider this project?

With my best regards.
Jean-Marc Lévy-Leblond
