Statement of Support

In 1883 the Aristotelian Society declared "The Society adopts, as its first and indispensable principle, to attach itself, as a Society, to none of the several Schools or Lines of Thought, which still, unhappily, divide the philosophical world. It is, on the contrary, its chief endeavour and boast, that adherents of any, or all the schools ... can and do meet as members of it on an equal footing, with equal freedom of discussion, and with equal welcome to propound their views. In no other way, the Society holds, is it possible to attain the end of philosophical discussion and study.”

In the spirit of this declaration of purpose the Aristotelian Society wishes to express its support for Prof Kathleen Stock's right to engage in philosophical debate and writing without harassment. The Society remains neutral on the philosophical debates in which she is engaged. We very much look forward to hearing her paper on June 3rd.
