I’m really sorry I’ve been quiet so long. It’s not for lack of thoughts. First I went to Sydney to work on my Nature of Classification book and then attend a workshop on the future of history and philosophy (and social studies) of science in Australia. And then I came back to Melbourne to have an arthroscopy on my knee.
Only thing is, when I was about to go into the theatre, the surgeon comes out and examines me, and then says, “You have a torn quadriceps attachment. You’re booked in for the wrong surgery.” which I have been saying for six months. I could have kissed him. At last somebody was paying attention!. So I underwent repair surgery instead. I aim to adopt him when I can.
Anyway I am now under heavy pain medication, but I have hope that I will be able to walk again. In about 18 weeks or so. For now I have an immobilized leg and a muzzy head. So I may be doing less writing until my head clears. I have many ideas, but sitting at a computer is hard enough without having to be creative.
So I crave your indulgence. I will do what I can, I promise…
