Most of the issues released prior to this batch have on-line excerpts. All SPPs will have on-line excerpts eventually — once I have the time, hardware, and software to do the job, that is. (I serve as SPP’s webmaster but have no other direct involvement with the publication.)
Check out the Web site of the Sino-Platonic Papers, now at a new URL, for details and a complete list of issues.
This will be the last batch to come out in printed form, so get ‘em while you still can.
