Hi Avi,

This is a great Habermas resource you've put together here. A question: do you know if this March issue of PE is available yet, or do you have access to it? I'm currently in a course looking at the relationship between physicalism and agency, and since I write on JH a lot this exchange between JH and Clarke et al. could really benefit me. Thanks.
