Leiter Report

I notice that the Leiter Report pre-publication headlines about UK departments has Cambridge ranked third, after Oxford, and the Stirling/St Andrews show. A happier outcome than in the RAE -- and the PGR rankings are rather a better indicator for prospective grad students, given that the RAE carves up the Cambridge philosophers into their separate institutional units, and the PGR rankings clump us together.

Not that we place too much store by such things. Oh, not at all. Perish the thought.

Is this what has become of the department of Russell, Ramsey, Wittgenstein, Moore, Broad, McTaggart? Pleasure at being ranked third, below StAndrews/Stirling? Sad.

I only said it was a happier outcome than the RAE!
