Neil Levy's Leaving

 

This issue is Neil Levy’s last with PIR. Neil has been part of our editorial team since 2012, and over the years, he’s done an enormous amount to keep the journal functioning and thriving. He’s now stepping down to devote more time to other projects—including, but certainly not limited to, his work as editor-in-chief of Neuroethics and associate editor of the Australasian Journal of Philosophy.

Thank you for everything, Neil, and best of luck with your future projects. 

 

Inba Kehoe and Robert Piercey
