Quality issues with Descartes' Discourse on the method[edit]

Could one of you experts please, please have a look at the article Discourse on the method?
It's in an abysmal state! Seems the authors made heavy use of their misconceptions and conjectures. A lot of issues already listed on the Talk page, proposals how to improve it too. But since all this is obstinately challenged as original research (which to my mind in this circumstances is quite impertinent), it seems that is a task for seasoned Wikipedians to do. (I can't. Otherwise I would spent the rest of my life in libraries to harvest all the refs to feed them. And which btw. no one needs who actually has read the book in the first place.) -- (talk) 08:44, 21 November 2017 (UTC)

To my mind → French WP Discours de la méthode is excellent and exactly how this article should be. -- (talk) 00:29, 22 November 2017 (UTC)

Maoist Theory of National Struggle[edit]

Would someone from this WikiProject mind assessing Maoist Theory of National Struggle? It's a newly created article moved directly to the mainspace by a student participating in Wikipedia:Wiki_Ed/UCSD/HIGR_210_Socialism_in_China_(2017_Fall). Just for reference, the article has already been userfied once before, but maybe this time around it is OK for the mainspace. -- Marchjuly (talk) 08:09, 28 November 2017 (UTC)

Disambiguation links on pages tagged by this wikiproject[edit]

Wikipedia has many thousands of wikilinks which point to disambiguation pages. It would be useful to readers if these links directed them to the specific pages of interest, rather than making them search through a list. Members of WikiProject Disambiguation have been working on this and the total number is now below 20,000 for the first time. Some of these links require specialist knowledge of the topics concerned and therefore it would be great if you could help in your area of expertise.

A list of the relevant links on pages which fall within the remit of this wikiproject can be found at

Please take a few minutes to help make these more useful to our readers.— Rod talk 18:00, 3 December 2017 (UTC)


The article Infinity (philosophy) has been undergoing significant expansion by one enthusiastic editor recently. Much of the added material has some English problems, which is easy enough to fix, but it's grown beyond my ability and expertise to really evaluate. A lot of it seems pretty off-topic, but there might be some worth keeping, so if anyone wants to take a look, it could probably use some eyes. Thanks. –Deacon Vorbis (carbon • videos) 02:41, 13 December 2017 (UTC)


Any philosophical insight that would be useful for the improvement of Draft:Comparison would be appreciated. Cheers! bd2412 T 19:12, 22 December 2017 (UTC)

Missing topic[edit]

When researching polychora, I came across the idea that spirits are four-dimensional beings. However, I do not see this anywhere on Wikipedia. LaundryPizza03 (talk) 09:56, 14 January 2018 (UTC)
