More Bayle + more on the DSM-5
This is just a brief Nederlog, reporting some progress on two subjects on two sites:


1. More Bayle
2. More on the DSM-5

1. More Bayle

As I mentioned some days ago

I want to put Bayle "An historic and critical dictionary" on line in English, and have started on that.

I also decided that I want to do it in a similar format as my Philosophical Dictionary, simply because this is the most appropriate form for Bayle's great work, and have started on that.

I redid the titlepage of volume I, the advertisement, and the biographical note and the advertisement, now comes with my notes to it, and there presently also are the first four entries in Bayle's Dictionary:

as yet without my notes, but in the format I think is appropriate: A column of text of roughly the width of the English edition I use.

So that's some progress.

2. More on the DSM-5

There's also progress as regards the DSM-5, namely on Suzy Chapman's DSM-5 site,

where you find a list of submissions to the APA about the DSM-5 here:

They are by patients' organizations, professionals and patients, in brief; most are displayed with full texts, some with links to pdf's or websites; and there are a lot of useful arguments there, that medical men and women who want to help their patients should take serious.

And as a reminder: If you want to protest against, simply comment on, yes - even sing the praise of the DSM-5 (if you are really mad or hope to profit from it) you can do so until July 15.

How to do so and much more is explained on Suzy Chapman's site just mentioned and linked.         

P.S. Corrections, if any are necessary, have to be made later.
