Defendant in Philosopher Stabbing Goes to Court

In early March, Finnish philosopher Esa Saarinen (Aalto University) was stabbed.

The attacker did not attempt to flee the crime scene after the knife had been wrestled out of his hands but remained there, in his own words, to talk about love and the contents of Saarinen’s lectures.

Not the kind of sharp questioning a philosopher typically looks forward to! The defendant is now in court, and claims he did not intend to kill Saarinen. Details here.
