Ian HunterIASH's Emeritus Professor Ian Hunter was interviewed by Michael Kretowicz, a UQ graduate now undertaking a PhD at Cambridge University. A transcript of interview, which took place at UQ in August last year, is now available on the website of the independent online journal, sugarcane.

The interview discloses the somewhat accidental character of Ian’s academic career and clarifies his views on the nature of intellectual history, before moving into his work on the history of philosophy, the distinction between historical and philosophical approaches to texts, the contemporary relevance of these differences, and their place in the modern university.
