Department of Philosophy at Rutgers University Supports CEU

In light of recent legislation, rammed through the Hungarian Parliament in unseemly haste; legislation that, if enacted, would jeopardize the continuing operation of your institution or at the very least endanger its independence, we - the members of the Philosophy Departments of Rutgers University, New Brunswick and Newark - write to express our joint support for the Central European University, and our deep concern about the Hungarian government's attack on academic freedom and excellence. It is one of the few remaining independent cultural institutions in Hungary, and the most prominent and prestigious university in all of East-Central Europe - a gem.
