Analytic Philosophy Department in Zagreb to be closed down
Call for Supporting our Colleagues in Zagreb
Dear All, the bad news from Zagreb philosophy circles is that Croatian authorities intend to close down the analytic philosophy department in Zagreb, the one belonging to the Faculty of Croatian Studies.
This department is a very efficient center for analytic philosophy, doing mainly philosophy of science and philosophy of language. Also, they have excellent scholars in ancient studies and early modern philosophy. The department has always operated on international grounds; many of us participated at their conferences in the last couple of years. You might know well Tomislav Bracanovic, Dusko Dozudic and Pavel Grigoric from the department.
I ask all those who feel solidarity with our Zagreb colleagues to sign this letter of support for keeping this good analytic philosophy department in the region. The Croatian Society for Analytic Philosophy will be informed about our petition so that they may collect other supporting signatures from friends outside Croatia.
