January 11: My manuscript entitled “Schopenhauer on Inner Awareness and World-Understanding” has been accepted for publication in

The British Journal for the History of Philosophy.

*Some Praise*

"This is an excellent, finely polished paper that advances both textual evidence and general philosophical arguments for the thesis that inner awareness has a representational character.

I found it a pleasure to read and to be presented with admirable perspicuity. Changed my mind about Schopenhauer's position in important ways and is likely to have the same effect on more generous critics. The paper is very, very good about providing recaps of complex strands of argument."

"Fascinating paper - very pleased to be publishing this."
