Good news, I hear as I get online from the Bahamas. Huw Price is definitely coming (back) to Cambridge as the next Bertrand Russell Professor of Philosophy on Simon Blackburn’s retirement.
Also the danger that my lectureship would lapse on my retirement seems to have been averted too (despite the financial turmoil which is affecting Cambridge like everywhere). Though it’s not so clear yet whether I’ll be replaced with someone who can do the necessary logic teaching to keep the logical backbone of the tripos firmly in place. But one battle at a time.
