Taylor/Francis (Routledge) is having a sale on electronic versions of the book I coauthored (and which this blog is named after) The Quantum of Explanation: Whitehead’s Radical Empiricism. The note from Routledge reads as follows:
(W)e’re running a monograph sale through June 11th. Readers can now access your book free-of-charge for seven days. At the end of the trial period, they’ll have the opportunity to purchase the eBook for £10/$15.

While I am obviously biased, many people who are not me also think that it is a very good book — indeed, one of the most important contributions to Whitehead scholarship in the last few decades. Many books in the secondary literature get Whitehead wrong; if you read our book, you’ll have some idea just how wrong. But in addition, Quantum will (ideally) provide you with essential insights into Whitehead’s magnum opus, Process and Reality, so that you might see for yourself why this latter book is such a revolution in thinking for the Western tradition. I’m not making any money off of this sale, and the price being asked by Routledge is pretty nearly unbeatable. So I encourage you to check it out!

I bought and downloaded the book and began reading it. Then ’something’ happened and it was gone and I cannot get back to the book. I’ve downloaded and put it in applications but it never asks me if I want to open it. It keeps putting another copy in my applications folder. Where can I get help for using KORTEXT? I’m somewhat a novice at these things and need help. I queried Safari but that did not help as far as I can see. I know this is not in your line of work but I do need help. Thanks, Ray

As mentioned, the free examination period was for only a week. It should still be available for purchase at the price mentioned in the Routledge notice.
