PROGRESS

Today, I finished proofreading Volume I of my collected papers.  This volume contains my writings on Hume and Kant and on higher education, including education i South Africa.  It will be available on Amazon as soon as we get the permissions, which as usual are slow in coming.

Tomorrow, I will start Volume II, my writings on Marx and Classical Political Economy.

The volume containing the Use and Abuse of Formal Methods in Political Economy, and a series of applications, is done but is awaiting a cover.

All in all, there will be six volumes of material, including my Memoir, some of it never before seen by anyone but me.

This is a very large project, but I rather suspect it may be completed by the end of the summer.  Then I will have to find something to occupy myself with.

Any suggestions?

Cross that bridge when you get to it? The massive interim project, plus the ongoing social charades, should spark some ideas.

I think you had mentioned once doing a mini-tutorial on the work of Erving Goffman. I think that would be much appreciated. I think "The Presentation of Self In Ordinary Life" is one of the best and wisest books I've read. Best wishes and good luck with the project at hand.

Re "awaiting a cover"

I don't read e-books, or at least i never have, so this may be a silly question. But here goes: I thought you were publishing these as digital vols., only readable by a computer or a device like a Kindle, Nook, etc. So why do you even need a cover?

I was a little puzzled by that as well, but I think the cover is portrayed by Amazon when you look it up. I guess when you download it you get the cover as well as a picture.

Thks, that makes sense.
