OUT OF PLATO’S CAVE: Excursions

A Work in Progress

The book “Out of Plato’s Cave” stimulated an impressive overgrowth of side explorations and studies. The book had already grown so large that these added pieces had to be turned into separate essays, which are collected here.

Here is a list of the titles of the Excursions that are complete in draft form. Some of these have been presented in blogs, talks, and papers. A few are incorporated in “Out of Plato’s Cave”. Some of these essays will be selected for a new book.
