(Most of) Middlesex is to move to Kingston

As I suggested in an earlier posting the management of Middlesex University have not backed down on their plan to close philosophy. Instead some of the members of staff who were based there have succeeded in moving themselves, programmes they were running and post-graduate students they were working with to Kingston University as is made clear in a statement over at the campaign

The official aim of the campaign must be said to have failed since it has proved impossible to shift the view adopted at Middlesex. Since one third of the original department will also not be moving the solution reached must also be said to be partial. Having said which it is still the case that Kingston University should be commended for its commitment to philosophy, a commitment lacking at Middlesex.
