Hey, they need me. Some idiot(s) have already been in there writing about Diderot as a materialist. I have to correct them. We must all intervene. This could take forever.

Hey, they have a spot in the philosophy section where they need an article on foundationalism, and nothing has been written yet. And we're just taking that NOW in Metaphysics and Epistemology.

However, somehow I don't think people should be relying on a second year student for expert advice about foundationalism...

My favorite Diderot anecdote: The Encyclopedie contains a lengthy article, written by D. himself, in which he discusses the Christian doctrine of holy communion, the presentation of the waifer, and theretical discussion of debate within Christian denominations as to whether or not
the body of Christ is actually present, or only present in theory, during the swallowing of the waifer. He closes with a respectful comment about the knowledge of the
various persons having an opinion on this, then adds a cross-reference: "See: cannibalism"
