My thanks for Chris Gousmett, Harry Der Nederlanden, Rudi Hayward and Theo Plantinga for suggesting some titles and spotting a few typos.

What about Choi's book "Dialogue and Antithesis" avaible on-line?

Also Hart's "Understanding our World," Stafleu's "Theories at Work" and Strauss' "Reintegrating Social Theory" probably to merit a mention.

Hi Rudi,

Yes - how could I have forgotten Choi's book! Thanks for that.

I haven't included works that develop D, but kept it to works on D. That might be the next list I work on!
