Yes - that's the one. I'd post a summary, except I'm still reading
it. He says much the same sorts of things I've been saying on the
topic, although far better reasoned and written that anything I've
done. There are some differences too, which I'm trying to get my head
around understanding. He apologises for it being so long, but he does
make contact with much of the other philosophical literature out there
in a way that I'm too impatient to do. He even addresses John Clark's
infamous "cuckoo clocks and roulette wheels" objection :).

More to say on the topic later (I hope :).
