I had been eyeing it before, but it is a very very loooong one - of complicated matter. Always the one to be left to the last, I guess...

Well - allright - I'll take it!

If not, I can take over, Anna. I don't mind philosophy that much :). Two of my classes are cancelled this week so I could spend some time on recording.

I've read so much Kant in the last few days that my brain hurts. Anna, are you sure you'd like it? I'd love for you to do it.

Also, I know Susan is DPL, but perhaps she might want some assistance in PLing? I don't want to speak for her, but I surely want to see this cataloged for Octo-Gone!

No, it's fine, I'll do it - I can do with a positive challenge after a not-so-positive day at work...:D

Ok here ya go:

I didn't understand a darn thing. It was like reading another language. Man. I might as well have been a trained monkey. A well-trained, text-reading monkey.

People who actually understand what Kant is saying, I take my hat off to you :)

It's a bit irregular, but you can mark it as having been proofed and "OK", if you want. I actually proofed it myself while following along with the text 'cause I could have missed whole lines while reading and never known it! I found three tiny textual errors but nothing worth fixing (imho).

Ha ha, I just finished the recording of section 10 (still have a lot of editing to do of it) and I have the same feeling - just trying to make sense of each sentence enough so as to put the stress on the right syllable, but didn't follow anything of the text... A weird way of recording!

Yeah, I had about four times the normal number of errors in this one just because I'd finally get to the end of a sentence and realize I'd put the stress in the wrong place because I didn't know what I was saying. I'm sure there are still a few oddly-accented sentences because I never could figure out what some of them meant!

I'm afraid this does really need a PL - I think I caught all my repeats & stumbles, but I'm not absolutely sure...

Thanks very much ladies! Even though you didn't understand what he meant. I minored in Philosophy, so.

Julie and BlackNTan, can you give me an ETA on your sections?

Susan, how is the PLing coming?

I just finished recording my section. I still have to edit it, quite thoroughly as might be supposed, but I'll have it ready by tomorrow morning.

Julie.
