...in the wake of sexual abuse and other scandals. (Do read the letter, it's quite strong.) I saw only three philosophy faculty among the signatories: Janet Levin, Edwin McCann and Gary Watson. (More law faculty signed, including one with a courtesy appointment in philosophy.) Philosophy, perhaps more than any other department at USC, has been a beneficiary of the fundraising by the current and prior USC leaders that has allowed it to become a top ten department through aggressive faculty recruitment.
UPDATE: I'm told that the letter stopped circulating after it got to 200 signatories, so many more philosophy (and other) faculty might well have signed had they had the opportunity.
