INVEST

I plan to offer original drafts of my metaphysics, and notes related to it, written between 1973 and 2022. Nearly all of these are worked over in my own hand. The sale of drafts could help me invest more time in further work, and communicate the ideas. Or so I think. Metaphysicians' notes can become very valuable. For example, about $100,000 for 100 pages of Whitehead's notes. I would probably make drafts available as part of a larger "patron package", once the book goes into production: 

  • Delivery anywhere in the world by FedEx
  • A selected item below, typically a signed draft of 200-300 pages
  • An unsigned copy of the new book from the publishers
  • A cover sheet with a standard "item overview"
  • A hand-written page, reflecting on the draft

Items are listed here in reverse-chronological order (newest items first). At present, in the interests of simplicity, only some of my most valuable offerings are shown. Once this offer is active, proof of deposit will see that a package is sent within a week. At the same time, I shall place an order for the printed book with the publishers.
