- Saif al Islam
“Chris Bertram (Bristol) points out to me that Durham (not philosophy) has recently hired the political theorist David Held from LSE. Held, like Nancy Cartwright (who is also moving to Durham, as noted), was involved in supervising Saif Gaddafi’s PhD thesis (which is suspected to have been plagiarized), and both were implicated in the resulting scandal about the Libyan government’s involvement with the LSE.

What role the unpleasantness of this affair played in the decion of these two scholars to leave I do not know, but several readers remarked on it.”
