Can you read this?

Contrary to what the title of this entry suggests, this is not a test entry, or even a test of your reading ability, but it is in fact a cleverly disguised rant. Here's my problem – philosophers seem unable to use any normal font size, preferring instead to write in the smallest print possible, in what I can only assume is a vain attempt at making their arguments look more substantial than they actually are. Now I don't have a problem with the substance of thier writings but I'd like to be able to concentrate on it for more than a couple of paragraphs at a time without straining my eyes! It could just be me, given my appalling eyesight (which has been considerably diminished following last week's operation) – if so feel free to ignore the above ramblings, but surely there must be some of you out there who have similar difficulties?!
Ah well, I'd better go and finish reading Moore… Now where did I put my magnifying glass?!...
