THE MYSTERIOUS WAYS OF THE WEB

By far the longest thread [is that the correct term of art?] provoked by my deliberately provocative post about the SCHEMATISM concerns the ways of putting diacritical marks in one's writing when using a Mac.  Perhaps in order to pump up interest in my forthcoming Kant lectures I ought to have a guest lecture by a computer maven who can discuss the arcana of entering unusual markings with a Mac or a PC.

Learning a software trick or two is easier than learning German vocabulary, which in turn is easier than learning Kant.

I'm up to B266 (still using the Kemp Smith translation), but struggling.

In that case, you have just finished the second most important passage in the CRITIQUE [the Second Analogy]. It is all downhill from here. Courage. All will be made clear.
