section 1 is PL okay.
I'm not too far behind yet, but I'll hopefully get caught up with the other few sections soon.

Notes for section 14 --

at 40:49 you read "according to this argument" but the text has "according to his argument."
it doesn't change the meaning really, but the first post requests word perfect PLing, so I've noted it.

also, does this need to have another end note? "End of Opuscula" ?



this section sure was odd to listen too-- so much philosophical knot-tying about being, not-being etc. etc.
it's also quite puzzling to me that the collection is called "Works of Aristotle," since all the translators' notes so far indicate that Aristotle actually didn't write any of these essays.

Thanks for the edits Plaidsicle.

I don't know when it was decided that Aristotle was the author of these texts. Probably it was well before the existence of the Roman Catholic Church.

My relatively recent Oxford collection of the works of Aristotle still includes all of these books and I would assume that the handful of Philosophy Nerds interested in reading these texts would search under Aristotle's name if they wanted to find them in a library.

Section 3 is uploaded. I had to add an additional section to this project to fit under LibriVox time length guidelines.

apologies for being slow here. section 14 (which was 13 before) is PL okay.

I've gotten very behind!

one PL note for section 3:
at 11:24 I heard "kind of data" instead of "kinds of data" as the text has it.


if any other willing PLers wander by, they are welcome to chip in here. I don't know how much regular PLing time I'll have for these longer sections, but I'll do as much as I can when I do get the chance.

Thanks Plaidsicle. This isn't your job. No deadline and no rush here.

I've been working on the Enneads by Plotinus. I am almost complete that project with only 9 sections left. I plan to focus on completing the Enneads which should take about 2 more months then to focus all my recording attention on Opuscula. On Indivisible Lines in particular looks short but I can tell it will be a real beast to record it properly and I want to be able to take my time and focus on it instead of feeling pressured to get beck to complete the Enneads. See you in April!
