We are delighted to announce that (what the editors have called) a 'Symposium' on F. R. Leavis: Critic, Teacher, Philosopher has just come out in Philosophy and Literature. You'll find the issue online here: http://muse.jhu.edu/issue/34022. Initial abstracts and front pages are available to all but accesssing the articles requires an academic subscription.We trust readers will agree that this a splendid current tribute to Leavis's thought and its continuing influence. We are exploring whether the editors will be able to offer a discounted price available to members of the Society. We will update members about this.
