Alexander-von-Humboldt Professorship for Stephan Hartmann

The Alexander von Humboldt Foundation just announced that Professor Stephan Hartmann (presently at Tilburg, http://stephanhartmann.org/) will be awarded an Alexander-von-Humboldt Professorship. There will be some final negotiations, but if they are successful, then Professor Hartmann will take up the chair in philosophy of science at LMU Munich and combine this with his Alexander-von-Humboldt Professorship which would be the second Alexander-von-Humboldt Professorship in philosophy in Munich in a row. Additionally, Stephan Hartmann and his future team in Munich will join the Munich Center for Mathematical Philosophy.

  2. This is MAJOR news indeed! A bit of a problem for philosophy in the Netherlands to lose Stephan, but luckily the ties between Munich and Groningen are going strong and may get even stronger now :)
