Casey (APA) comment

10 May 2010

The Middlesex action is reprehensible in the extreme. It is an arbitrary administrative  intervention that has no serious budgetary basis and that was taken without adequate consulting and survey procedures — which would have confirmed that the Middlesex philosophy department is truly distinguished, nationally as well as internationally, in the field of continental philosophy. Such action must be disputed and resisted — and decisively reversed. The outpouring of support from around the world for such reversal is truly extraordinary. I hereby challenge the Middlesex Board of Governors to re-consider their unwarranted closure of the philosophy department.
