My understanding is that Vol 2 hasnt been published yet (Ive ordered it
from the Internet Bookshop who've informed me that it wasnt yet in print),
although its in the catalogue.  No sign, however, of Vols 3 and 4, so Im
not sure how one would go about finding out what they contain.
I cant remember what you said about Vol 1.  could you refresh my memory?
Ive got all 4 volumes of Dits et Ecrits published by Gallimard and expected
the English translation to follow the same format and was surprised to find
that in fact the texts were organised thematically (in itself not a
problem, perhaps a good thing in fact) and that not all had been
translated.  I think it's a shame.
