David Foster Wallace’s Undergraduate Thesis Will Be a Book


In January 2011, Columbia University Press will publish an adaptation of the undergraduate philosophy thesis David Foster Wallace wrote while he was a student at Amherst. Originally titled "Richard Taylor's 'Fatalism' and the Semantics of Physical Modality," it will be printed under the more accessible name Fate, Time, and Language: An Essay on Free Will.
