Philosopher Garry Hagberg (Bard College) writes:
It has come to my attention that my name has been used without my knowledge or permission to support a project in which I have no involvement whatsoever. Recently, 2,000 invitations have gone out asking for contributions to a planned series of edited volumes devoted to the writings of Mr. David Birnbaum to be published by a private press known as Harvard Matrix Press. In the invitation letter I was identified as co-editor of this series and I have discovered that I appear on the website for this press as an "editorial
advisor" as well as an endorser of his work. I would like to let philosophers know of this alarming misrepresentation: At no time was I informed of or involved in the project, at no time was I consulted about it, and I have absolutely no connection to this undertaking. Furthermore I have written no testimonial or evaluation of Mr. Birnbaum's work, nor have I ever been asked to do so.
