Abstract

What lies before you is a considerable experiment. I am mindful of the dangers of such an undertaking since it runs the risk of being largely ignored. At best, however, these kind of experiments engender thoughtful reflection and sometimes even a knowing response. If the latter occurs, my efforts will have been very much worthwhile.
