Parlement des philosophes (Strasbourg)

27 May 2010

to the Board of Governors
Middlesex University inLondon
The Burroughs
London NW4 4BT

Dear Members of the Board:

The “Parlement des philosophes” of Strasbourg strongly protests against the closure of the Philosophy programmes at Middlesex University and against the shameful suspension of three philosophy professors and four philosophy students for the “crime” of peacefully occupying their University to save their programmes. We consider it as an intolerable attack against academic freedom.

If these outrageous decisions are not immediately cancelled, we will join the international call for the boycott of Middlesex University and we will propose to the University of Strasbourg to join officially this campaign.

Jacob Rogozinski, Professor of Philosophy at Strasbourg University, President of the “Parlement des philosophes”

Joëlle Strauser, Professor of Philosophy and Head of the Department of Philosophy at Metz University, Secretary of the “Parlement des philosophes”

Gérard Bensussan, Professor of Philosophy at Strasbourg University, former President of the “Parlement des philosophes”

Jean-Luc Nancy, former Professor of Philosophy at Strasbourg University, Honorary President of the “Parlement des philosophes”
