7 Celebrity Professors Teaching At The UK's New College Of The Humanities

First Posted: 06/07/11 10:51 AM ET   Updated: 08/06/11 06:12 AM ET

The controversial and incredibly expensive (at least for British standards) New College of the Humanities has lined up an imposing array of academics to instruct their prospective students. If, of course, they actually teach there.

The Wall Street Journal had this to say about all the hand-wringing:

At Crooked Timber, Daniel Davies notes that much of the coverage has focused on the luminaries associated with the college: “But, sharp cookies will have noted, none of them appear to have resigned from their existing posts or given any notice that they intend to do so.” As a result, “I would guess that the teaching will also come from the middle ranks of the British academic proleteriat.”

Ahh, well. We will have to see.

The British philosopher, author and professor is the founder and master of the New College of the Humanities. "Society needs us to be thoughtful voters, good neighbours, loving parents and responsible citizens," Grayling told the Guardian. "If we are to discover and inspire the next generation of lawyers, journalists, financiers, politicians, civil servants, writers, artists and teachers, we need to educate to the highest standards and with imagination, breadth and depth."
