I've been working on this article, in one form or another, for more than five years, and it has mutated dramatically on several occasions along the way. This final version is rather long (27,000 words), but there's also a much shorter Précis, and a slide presentation of the main points.

And here’s a link to my Philosophy notes - a series of notes that I put together as part of an informal research project between 2000 and 2005:

1:  A brief introduction
