The charitable organization Oxfam refused to accept a donation of £5,000 accrued in royalties from sales of his book, 'After the Terror'.

Ted Honderich has been the Grote Professor of the Philosophy of Mind and Logic at University College London, and visiting professor at Yale University, the Graduate Center at CUNY, and Brooklyn College. >> Listen to the interview >> Read Why Ted Honderich is Wrong on all Accounts
