Summer Knowledge Challenge 2014

This year, I read Justice for Hedgehogs[^aff] by Ronald Dworkin. In philosophy, ethics was always my favorite topic. In fact, I always was into most of the topics of practical philosophy.

Consequently, there won't be much additional research. How does the Knowledge Cycle apply if you read a book and don't do research? I invite you to take the "Summer Knowledge Challenge" and find out with me.
