COMING SOON TO YOUR LOCAL SUPERMARKET

I have started working with a graduate student in Philosophy at McMaster University in Canada to digitize some of my out-of-print books and make them available cheaply on Amazon.com and other sites.  The first one, now available, is my 1968 book The Poverty of Liberalism.  I will try to get others up there, once we work out some delicate copyright questions.  Harvard University Press let my first book, Kant's Theory of Mental Activity, go out of print forty years ago or so, and now all of a sudden wants to celebrate its 100th anniversary by reissuing some of its10,000 titles, including maybe mine [for a gazillion dollars, probably.]  I am going to arrange to get the rights back and have it put up on Amazon cheap.

My copy of Autonomy of Reason, a hard cover edition, has no index. So, if the work has yet to acquire one somewhere in its publication history, this might be the occasion for it.

Alas no. That is a long story. Harper and Row published it because of the great success of In Defense of Anarchism, but they did not really want to, so they skimped. Maybe once it is digitized, it will be searchable.
