Exciting news for philosophy in Scotland! Crispin Wright has accepted an offer to found and direct a new philosophical research centre at the University of Aberdeen. The centre will ‘go live’ Sep 1st 09, and is provisionally named ‘The Northern Institute of Philosophy’.
The NIP’s areas of remit will be: Epistemology, Formal Logic, Philosophy of Logic, Philosophy of Language, Philosophy of Mathematics, Metaphysics, Philosophy of Mind, and the History of Analytical Philosophy. A number of appointments will be made of various categories in the near future, and a bunch of the Leeds faculty will be involved as Associate Fellows, and in other respects.
