Some explanation for my regular readers, who may wonder what the purpose of this short piece is.

Since I have taken to providing links to prior posts under the title 'Roots' in my larger articles, I felt it necessary to have a single link to point to all my Caillois articles. That's the sole purpose of this.

I still haven't written about Caillois' sociological applications for this system, but I'm tempted to at some point.

These comments have been invaluable to me as is this whole site. I thank you for your comment.

Happy to be of assistance Rosie! Best wishes!
