  1. Philosophy is about thinking as clearly and insightfully as human beings can.

    Nothing demonstrates more forcefully the lack of philosophical formation of the leaders at Middlesex than their abolishing philosophy. Only people who do not appreciate the importance of thinking well, would come up with such a project.

    Once they were tempted to abolish philosophy in their university, the leaders of Middlesex should have retreated, horrified that they could even consider such a move and made philosophy mandatory for all top mangers and trustees of the university. Obviously the thinking of Middlesex leaders is deplorably deficient.
