repeated addition of self-published work in logic articles

Please review the contributions of Mfreeman2222 to articles on logic. I reverted the additions to Logic, but don't have the heart to undo them all, especially if the text is not itself unreasonable. Outriggr (talk) 05:11, 11 January 2020 (UTC)

It's certainly reasonable to undo them per WP:COI and request that they use an Edit request on the article talk page instead. I've welcomed them and added a link to WP:SELFCITE. Mathglot (talk) 05:53, 11 January 2020 (UTC)

Please suggest how I can help.

I am an Undergraduate student studying History and International Relation at the Birkbeck University College London, and one of my modules was social and political studies. You have an interesting wiki-project and as a beginner I would like be part of Wiki-project philosophy, specifically political and social philosophy. Do you have any practical but simple tasks I can do?. --Tohnnysmith (talk) 14:36, 11 January 2020 (UTC)

I often do one of two things to get started and find things to edit:
1. In the sidebar on this page (above, right), click "show" next to "articles by quality." Click one of the lower quality designations ("stub" or "start" class), and it will send you to a long (multi-page) list of articles needing improvement, sorted by importance. Do you see any with which you have some familiarity? You might be able to improve the article. The ones in the low-quality categories are often low-traffic, and some might even have simple copy-editing or clarity needs.
2. Is there a notable book on philosophy that does not have an article (I find that recent books often don't get articles for a few years after release)? You could potentially create the article (NOTE: this would not be a simple task, and I would recommend submitting it as a draft for review. The MOST important tip for creating an article about a book is making sure that you cite reviews in major publications to show the book is actually notable. See Resource: Notability (books)).--MattMauler (talk) 15:38, 11 January 2020 (UTC)

"Will (philosophy)" Article Questions & Intentions

Hello, everyone. I have been working on the "Will(Philosophy)" article for a few weeks now. So far I have been planning on adding more content to the "Kant" and "Rousseau" sections of the article, the draft of which is in peer review currently. Last week, on February 21, I received a critique from Sulferboy, mentioning that my article was written in an essay-like style, and that I did not have secondary, reliable sources, although I have both primary and secondary sources in my References section. What should I do? Also, I just wanted to ask if it would be alright if I eliminate the following from the "Kant" section of the "Will (Philosophy)" article: "Kant's Transcendental Idealism claimed that "all objects are mere appearances [phenomena]."[8] He asserted that "nothing whatsoever can ever be said about the thing in itself that may be the basis of these appearances."[9] Kant's critics responded by saying that Kant had no right, therefore, to assume the existence of a thing in itself."? Thank you for taking the time to look over this issue? I cited my sandbox page where my article draft is located. User:Christopher_H._Moller/sandbox--Christopher H. Moller (talk) 10:50, 25 February 2020 (UTC)

Responding to your second question: I would recommend asking about the removal of that material on the talk page of that article rather than here. If you comment there and give a clear reason for removing it, other editors can respond who are more familiar with the content and with the whole article. If no responds after several days, you can remove it (then if someone objects you can continue the discussion, etc.).--MattMauler (talk) 13:10, 25 February 2020 (UTC)
