Elias Muhanna, who had organised the conference held between October 2013 at Brown University, did a great job as editor of the volume which is now available online and—ironically—in print for the substantial price of € 99.95 / USD 140.1 It comprises essays by Elias Muhanna, Travis Zadeh, Dagmar Riedel, Chip Rosetti, Nadia Yaqub, Maxim Romanov, Alex Bley, José Haro Peralta and Peter Verkinderen, Joel Blecher, Dwight F. Reynolds, and myself.
