Scottish News

In my mailbox today, the odd announcement:

Following Gordon Graham's appointment to a new post at Princeton Theological Seminary, the Center for the Study of Scottish Philosophy is relocating to the USA. This process will take some time, but the first stage has now been completed.
Yes, I understand that McCosh was in Princeton, yet still this strikes me as a great shame. And will the Reid Archives will move from Aberdeen to Princeton as well?

Lord Monboddo, esteemed author of Antient Metaphysics, would no doubt shudder. (And you were wondering perhaps what the connection was to ancient philosophy. You see there was one.)
