Interesting article on some recent unethical goings-on in a high profile Philosophy dept.

Ridiculous, but I wouldn't be surprised if this lead to addressing similar issues at other universities. I don't personally know the interpersonal relationships among the faculty at my undergrad philosophy dept, but I do know that several faculty were "ogling undergraduate" women as well. Including my sister, to whom one of my favorite professors said rather sexually inappropriate things via text.


RAWR.


P.S.
Subject title a good band name?

Ugh. One of my friends was just telling me last week that her thesis advisor told her he was in love with her before she had even started her Honours project. Needless to say, she quit the program before she even started. It's disturbing to think how much of this kind of thing would go on unreported.

I had a (philosophy) professor tell me outright that he didn't want to be a Christian because then he would have to give up sleeping with all the coeds in his classes.

He at least gave an accurate implication of Christianity's actual teachings.

It wasn't directed at anyone in particular, just an observation of common grace.

I totally agree with you though.
