Greater Philadelphia Philosophy Consortium

The Greater Philadelphia Philosophy Consortium is a nonprofit educational organization founded in 1980 serving the region around Philadelphia, including western New Jersey and northern Delaware. Its current membership includes the philosophy departments of universities; the GPPC states its purpose as "fostering cooperation among philosophers" and "sharing the insights and methods of philosophy with a larger public." Michael Krausz and Joseph Margolis co-founded the GPPC in 1980. The GPPC was founded to help bridge between the traditions of Anglo-American philosophy and Continental philosophy that persisted in the early 1980s, it sought to enlarge the scope of philosophical inquiry, pursuing interdisciplinary topics in the sciences, social sciences, other humanities. The earliest core member institutions of the GPPC included the philosophy departments of Bryn Mawr College, the University of Pennsylvania, Temple University, Villanova University; each of these offers advanced degrees in philosophy and extended instructional and library access to graduate students of other GPPC member schools.

Drexel University, Haverford College, La Salle University, Swarthmore College soon joined as associated faculties, though not offering advanced degrees in philosophy. The GPPC attracted the participation of faculty at other institutions, as well as other qualified persons in the Philadelphia region with an interest in philosophy. Support for the GPPC during the 1980s included grants from the Pennsylvania Humanities Council, Rockefeller Foundation, Exxon Educational Foundation, Pew Charitable Trusts; the Consortium is led by a Board of Directors, which consists of one faculty representative from each member institution. The Board selects several officers from among these representatives; the GPPC receives support from a Board of Governors, who are a mix of academics and non-academics who share an interest in the public role of philosophy. The GPPC operates under the auspices of the Greater Philadelphia Human Studies Council, composed of 15 colleges and universities in the Philadelphia region.

The Council exists to promote interdisciplinary faculty interaction and development, including the funding of four distinct consortia. The Philosophy Departments of the following institutions are current members of the GPPC: Bryn Mawr College Drexel University Haverford College La Salle University Pennsylvania State University Rosemont College St. Joseph’s University Swarthmore College Temple University The College of New Jersey University of Delaware University of Pennsylvania Ursinus College Villanova University West Chester University The GPPC hosts a variety of conferences each year, including a Public Issues Forum and an Undergraduate Philosophy Conference. Past conference speakers include well-known recent philosophers such as Jürgen Habermas, Richard Rorty, Stanley Cavell; the Consortium sponsors a variety of discussion groups and working groups. Past topics include aesthetics and theory of interpretation and feminism, ancient Greek philosophy.

Sepp Herberger

Josef "Sepp" Herberger was a German football player and manager. He is most famous for being the manager of the West German national team which won the 1954 FIFA World Cup final, a match dubbed The Miracle of Bern, defeating the overwhelming favourites from Hungary, he had coached the Breslau Eleven, one of the greatest teams in German football history. Born in Mannheim, Herberger played three times for the German football team between 1921 and 1925 before becoming assistant to Otto Nerz in 1932. Herberger succeeded him as national coach after Germany's uninspired loss to Norway in quarter finals at the 1936 Olympics. After the war, he had a short spell as interim coach with Eintracht Frankfurt, before being recalled as national team coach in 1950, he remained the position until 1964. He died of pneumonia in Weinheim–Hohensachsen, aged 80. Herberger joined the Nazi Party in 1933, his nomination to the Germany's Sports Hall of Fame in 2008 caused a lot of criticism because of his Nazi past. Hungary was the overwhelming favourite to win the 1954 World Cup.

Its legendary Golden Team known as the Mighty Magyars, had not lost a match in 4 years. They were the reigning Olympic Champion and had won the Central European International Cup in 1953. Once the World Cup started, Hungary had been dominant, outscoring their opponents 17–3 in their two group games while West Germany had been outscored 7–9. In their match against each other, Hungary had won 8–3; the final was played in heavy rain. Hungary scored an early goal and minutes doubled their lead. Germany pulled one back within two minutes, equalized eight minutes after that. Hungary was unable to score. West Germany scored with 6 minutes left in the match to win 3–2. Among Herberger's moves credited with helping the team in the final are: fielding a below strength and out-of-position team in the first match against Hungary, to disguise the team's strengths. Three of these sayings are quoted in the beginning of the 1998 film Run Lola Run; the first is at the beginning of the film. After a series of intentionally confusing and innocuous statements and character introductions, a simple minded security guard utters the phrase "Der Ball ist rund und das Spiel dauert 90 Minuten.", a used amalgamation of two separate famous quotes.

The 2003 film, The Miracle of Bern, following Herberger and his team's path to victory in the 1954 World Cup features a number of these quotations including the amalgamation of two of the above, "The ball is round and the game lasts for 90 minutes".
