It thrills me that there is a publishing academic named Frisbee.

From the front-page Heidegger review:

There is a well-known short story by Borges concerning one Pierre Menard, a scholar who spends a lifetime on attempting to translate Don Quixote in such a way, if possible, as to surpass the original. Finally, he succeeds -- succeeds by re-creating, line-for-line and word-for-word, the exact text of the original.


Note to philosophy journal reviewers: don't try to look smart by making references to Borges when you clearly haven't read the story you're talking about.

Were they not open access before? I don't even remember.

Might have been. They're new to me, though, and to metafilter.

It looks like they're commissioned specifically by Notre Dame for this site.

Yeah, I didn't mean to suggest otherwise. A good place to point people, absolutely.

I was just wondering about the factual question; I think of them as having been open access for as long as I've been aware of them, but can't actually remember if that's true or if I've just been getting access through my university library.
