She served as the President of the British Academy in 1998-2010. In 2003, Lady O’Neill was the Founding President of the British Philosophical Association. Until October 2006, she was the Principal of Newnham College, Cambridge. Onora O’Neill visited IKBFU to deliver a series of lectures on Kant’s philosophy.

    The meeting was also attended by Jacob Nell, a Moscow-based economist for Morgan Stanley, and Gareth Ward, HM Consul General in Saint Petersburg. At the meeting, the IKBFU’s Vice-rector for Development and Innovations, Timur Gareev, told the guests about the university’s key priorities and the implementation of the university development programme. The Vice-rector for International Relations, Igor Zhukovsky, emphasised the importance of such high-level international contacts for the federal university. The Vice-rector for Research, Gennady Fedorov, acquainted the guests with a series of the university’s research publications.

     Lady O’Neill expressed her gratitude for the opportunity to visit Kaliningrad and the university named after the great Immanuel Kant and presented the university with books on philosophy. Consul-General Gareth Ward suggested discussing the opportunity for IKBFU’s students to visit British universities without paying the enrolment fee. After the meeting, Lady O’Neill delivered a lecture on the legacy of Immanuel Kant to IKBFU’s graduate, postgraduate, and PhD students.

    Later, Lady O’Neill answered several questions of www.kantiana.ru. She said that she was pleased to visit a city, whose history is permeated with the spirit and personality of the eminent philosopher Immanuel Kant. She emphasised that his philosophical treatises written several centuries ago are highly relevant in the 21st century. Lady O’Neill said that she had been astonished by Kant’s treatise The Critique of Pure Reason and the mere possibility of criticising reason meant to criticise other things. It became the topic of her lecture delivered to Kaliningrad students.

    Today, Lady O’Neill does not only give lectures on philosophy in North-western Europe, the USA, and countries of the East, but also cooperate with a number of NGOs aspiring to increase the quality of education. She said she would like students to receive high-quality knowledge applicable in their future occupations and wished IKBFU’s students not only to become qualified specialists in their fields, but also personalities with broad knowledge that can be used in everyday life.
