50 years ago Professor Glendinning gave an inaugural lecture arguing for the abolition of inaugural lectures. His failure allowed his son to return to this theme. This lecture explores whether philosophy’s distinctive and historic relation to something like an inaugural public pledge to speak publicly points towards a conception of the professor in general as someone who, working in the university, demands that such work not be exclusively enclosed within it.
