ジェフ・マーシー教授 辞任 -------- 2015/10/15 - Astronomer Geoff Marcy has resigned from the University of California, Berkeley after community outcry over an investigation that found he had violated campus sexual harassment policies.
a star professor could kiss, massage, and grope female students;
Harvard astronomy professor John Asher Johnson was a graduate student in Marcy’s lab from 2000 to 2007. During his first few years in the lab, Johnson told BuzzFeed News, he directly witnessed Marcy giving an undergraduate a back massage, with his hand underneath her shirt, alone and after hours in the lab.
マッギンは哲学的論理学、形而上学、言語哲学について数多くの論文を執筆しているが、彼の名は心の哲学において最もよく知られている。1989年の論文「私たちは心身問題を解決できるのか？( "Can We Solve the Mind-Body Problem?")」においてマッギンは、人間の心は生得的にそれ自身を理解することが不可能なのであり、この不可能性によってデカルト以来の西洋哲学は意識の謎に取りつかれてきたのだと考察した。したがって、マッギンによる意識のハード・プロブレムへの解答とは、意識の謎は人間にとって認知的に閉じられており、解答不可能だというものである。このような立場は新神秘主義 (New Mysterianism)と呼ばれている
Resignation --------------- Further information: University of Miami § Title IX lawsuit
In January 2013 McGinn resigned his position at the University of Miami, effective at the end of the calendar year, after a female graduate student complained that he had been sexually harassing her, including by text and email. He denied any wrongdoing. Represented by Ann Olivarius, the student, Monica Morrison, complained in April 2014 to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission that the university had mishandled the case. She filed a lawsuit in October 2015 against the university, McGinn and Edward Erwin, another philosopher at Miami. The complaint accused McGinn of sexual harassment, civil assault and defamation, and Erwin of defamation. It alleged that the university had violated Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (which requires that women have equal access to education) by failing to investigate the student's complaint adequately, and by failing to protect her from retaliation, including from McGinn on his blog before his resignation came into effect. McGinn's lawyer, Andrew Berman, said that McGinn "denies the claims and we will vigorously defend against them in the appropriate forum."
The incident triggered a debate about the extent to which sexism remains prevalent in academia, particularly in academic philosophy, and the effect on students and teachers of harassment and harassment-related complaints. In 2014 McGinn was offered a visiting professorship by the philosophy department at East Carolina University, but the offer was reversed by university administrators. McGinn blamed the sexual-harassment allegations for East Carolina's decision.
--------------- When McGinn began blogging about the situation, 93 philosophy academics, including Elizabeth S. Anderson, Nancy Bauer, Anat Biletzki, Susan Brison and Catherine Elgin, signed an open letter, in July 2013, asking that the university "discharge its duty to protect its students from acts that amount to de facto retaliation from professors about whom they have complained." Several academics wrote in support of McGinn, including Steven Pinker, Esa Saarinen, Oliver Sacks and Stephen Schiffer. ........................
..................... A former philosophy graduate student at the university, Monica Morrison, complained in 2014 to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission that the university had mishandled a sexual-harassment complaint she made, in September 2012, against the philosopher Colin McGinn. McGinn and the university agreed that he would resign in January 2013, effective at the end of the calendar year, for having failed to report a consensual relationship.
The student said that there had been no consensual relationship. <---------- じゃあ何なの ? . . . レーイプ ? ? 催眠術 ? ? 洗脳 ? ? . . . w w w
