This is the second paper that I have Written in VUE and find that the visual way in which I can lay out my paper makes the process more tangible, even from the very beginnings when papers are almost too abstract to even grasp. In any case, I am Putting this map here because I want to show the developers that this program can be used to write a paper up till almost the finished piece, so that they may think about ways to take the program in such a direction. I had used Scrivener with great delight, because it brought me one step closer to a tangible way of writing, but VUE just knocks it out of the ball park.

P.S. Not everything went into my final piece. And also I'm sure that I did at least a little writing to myself in some of the nodes, but it would take far too long to root about comments make only for me, so please pardon my personal banter, for it was not intended for you.

Here is the map that I created and used to construct a philosophy of aesthetics paper. Mostly the map was helpful in deconstructing and then re synthesizing Hume's convoluted paper Of the Standard of Taste.

Hi Patrick,

Thank you for sharing your map once again. I just had a look at the POS. The layout as multiple networks is beautiful. I just wondered why it is so extremely spread, at least at my screen.

Best

Hello Luka,

Good question. The clearest answer that I can give is that in the process of using VUE, to help me understand the relationships of ideas in my paper, the layout of the map evolves to suit the clearest image of my paper. I don't intend for any particular aesthetics; I get what naturally comes out. But this flexibility is what is so great about this program.

The very short answer is that I get the clearest image for me.

Thanks for the question. If you want a more in-depth answer let me know.
