This web site includes updates and other materials that can facilitate greater in-depth examination of key topics. The web site and the book have been written entirely in my capacity as an independent scholar; they do not reflect in any way the work of organizations with which I have been affiliated. I appreciate very much a research grant from the Schoeller Foundation, which facilitated my research without imposing any restrictions on it.
