- "Higher Education & research Opportunities in the United Kingdom [...] the official gateway to universities, colleges
and research organisations in the UK."
- The "Research Assessment Exercise" - for those who are unaware of this, it's a way to force the
Universities into an hysterical obsession with research, so that they blow their budgets for the next few years on attracting people
with good (i.e., long) publication-lists (regardless of their teaching ability or fitness for the post) so that the various Departments
and Faculties get a good score and so attract Government funding. It's one of the most demeaning and despicable aspects of Higher
Education at the moment (though there's a lot of competition).
This country is rapidly heading towards the U.S. system of turning academics into paper mills, their tenure depending on the quantity
of publications they churn out (and so leading to an explosion in the number of journals needed to cope with the immense deluge of
third-rate, hastily written, and pointless work that results).

- "an independent organisation, founded to make philosophy accessible in a way that suits the participants, not any institution
- Philosophical Society of England
- "The Society helps to bring together professional philosophers and non-professionals, to bring philosophical ideas and problems
to the public attention, and to encourage wider discussion of both traditional and topical philosophical issues. To carry out this
function, the Society publishes its own journal, The Philosopher, sets up local groups for lectures and discussions, and awards diplomas
to applicants who demonstrate the required competence in philosophy by writing papers or a dissertation."
