A list of the full contents of preceding issues of the recently
defunct journal _Common Sense_ is now available at a Turkish website:


btw, isn't the whole point of philosophy to comprehend the world by
surpassing the prejudices of common sense? Furthermore, wasn't Marx also
very critical of the scientific merit of common sense (this is implied
in, among other places, the "Preface to the French Edition" of Volume 1
of _Capital_)? Thus, this seems to be an odd choice for the name of a
radical journal. Any thoughts?

In solidarity, Jerry
