The point isn't about philosophy in particular but the way in which this recession is clearly being used as an opportunity by university administrators to cut the very kinds of non-vocational humanities/arts based departments that they've been reluctantly servicing for decades now. Universities are being told to cut costs but not the areas where the cuts have to be made. It's therefore their choice to put the squeeze on already woefully underfunded English lit, Philosophy, Music, History and Fine Art departments, while leaving more commercially viable, broadly science-based ones relatively untouched.
