Thanks for sharing your views, Mark! I just want to flag that the typical teaching load in the Netherlands is much, much higher. For most people it is 4-5 courses, but for new lecturer-hires they typically get 70% teaching and 30% research - which, to my mind, means that in the first years you work 45-55 hours a week only on teaching, since you need to develop these new courses, and course development takes a lot of time.

I love it that you're developing a program on how to integrate Islamic, Chinese, Indian and African perspectives on ethics into the program. Perhaps we should bring together Philosophers based in the Netherlands who would like to do something similar (in either teaching or research). I may contact you about this offline, if you don't mind.
