To avoid abstractness and misunderstanding I should have said something  
more, namely that I proud of any member of the list, who publishes papers or  
books by profiting from our discussions.

I have appreciated many of  the exchanges on the list and have
learned from them (but hope that I  will not be accused of plagiarism
in the future as others have  been).

Michael, a good new year's resolution. Do not worry about plagiarism. I  do 
not know what happened in the past. But I assure you (following your maxim  
about combating another sort of liberalism)  I will be one of the first  attack 
back those who dare even think loudly to accuse people of plagiarism on  this 
list. We have here a collective aim and in the process of pursuing this  goal 
we all contribute to one anothor's intellectual development. I just want  to 
remind us of what Hegel says in his critique of Descartes and his  followers: 
before we can say mine and thine we have to say ours. I add: we can  say mine 
and thine just because it is ours. In short, knowledge economy is a  myth and 
intellectual property is another sort of fetishism we have to  combat.
