Letter in support of Philosophy at Middlesex University

I have received worrying news that the Middlesex University executive are to close all Philosophy programmes and to shut down the Centre for Research in Modern European Philosophy, which is well known as the main centre for European or ‘continental’ philosophy in the UK, with an established international reputation, frequent visiting speakers from abroad and increasing numbers of postgraduate students. Moreover, the Middlesex Centre for Research in Modern European Philosophy is widely recognised as one of the most important centres for the study of modern European philosophy anywhere in the English-speaking world. However, the abrupt closure of all Philosophy programmes at Middlesex University is not only a matter of national but above all of international concern.

Henceforth, the termination of Philosophy at Middlesex University would represent significant loss not just for British but also for the entire international philosophical scene. With deep expression of professional and humane solidarity with my colleagues philosophers from Middlesex University, I am urging the appropriate instances of the University authorities to cast aside the termination of Philosophy at Middlesex University thus preventing one tremendous cultural disgrace both for British and the  world academic community.
