Charles Pasternak asserts that students at "new" universities are not taking courses in philosophy. I can assure him that philosophy, both single honours and in combination, is studied at a wide range of post-1992 institutions, and that standards are as high as at older universities. If he wishes to see what is available, he need only look at this week's list of clearing vacancies.
