My vita-list has several intellectual history lists. This includes a complete vita and a simple chronological listing of all papers (with all the pre-tex papers – around half – from 1969–1989 that I don't yet have on-line). Some articles may have a clickable .cor corrections file. Corrections policy at correct-policy.html.
