Not for publication, obviously – just the quickest means of communication as our email is down over the whole 5-day long weekend.
I’ve just read your revised “Signifying Nothing”. Slowly(!), in order to understand as well as possible outside my own “world”. If I’m reading correctly, I think you might like to re-proof 2 sentences, if there’s still time. (Though I know that the transfer to electronic format sometimes does create “ghost” errors, as with spacing and apostrophes.)
There seems to be a verb missing in the sentence: “We suspect, actually, that this last [???] why such energetic and intelligent economists…”.
And then, in the para starting “They appear to appreciate…”, did you mean “the purist metaphysics” or “the purest”? Or “purist” without the article?
Hope this is helpful, and in time.
Bloem is caught in a sudden severe cold front with night temperatures little above zero, BTW, but the days are wonderful – clear, sunny and bracing. Wish you could share it!
Fondest love and blessings, always,
