Elliot, Edward Mason, Talcott Parsons, and Andreas Pred hl have so generously afforded me, i don't consider convinced that i've got succeeded in conquering the problems which confront the translator of one of these hugely summary treatise. Had no longer Professor Marshall and Dr. Mason learn the total manuscript via and made various feedback for its development, I worry I don't have came upon the braveness to allow it see the sunshine of day. will probably be conceded by means of those that have launched into the damaging event of translating summary inspiration from one language into one other that not anything is extra perplexing.
