Oxford Philosophy

Prompted by an overview of the situation authored by former Oxford lecturer Michael Rosen, a candid discussion of how one might go about (or not, as it may be) getting a philosophy job in Oxford is underway on Brian Leiter's site here.

In keeping with the spirit of Ralph's comments, it's my impression and experience that outsiders stand a better chance than they used to do, but also that reputation for past cronyism is neither undeserved, nor easily shaken.
