I just got a notice in the mail from my old philosophy department at Berkeley with great news! Apparently, they'd been concerned about their funding, but now funding has been guaranteed by an anonymous sponsor. Also, they mentioned that the department has decided to rename the process of Hegel's Dialectic. Instead of "THESIS - ANTITHESIS - SYNTHESIS", it's "THESIS - 3COMTHESIS - SYNTHESIS". They look forward to the exciting opportunities this will provide.
