Re: Alegeo Plagiarism
Well the below comments by Gregory Tillet
in Theos-Talk Digest 2593 are very interesting
and Important. Here I was giving credit to Algeo
for some admirable research and comments, and
actually he is just directly using Cooper's own
writing - under his own name as Editor. WOW!
Well, this is LOW! Why? - because no doubt he
couldn't LEGALLY use Cooper's writing, so he did
it ILLEGALLY, or unethically, without crediting Cooper.
My! My! My! How much of this is Cooper's and
how much Algeo??
<The claim that Johnís research was not
<included in the Algeo volume is Ė let me
<use plain language Ė a blatant, scandalous
<and bare-faced lie. I have beside me as I write
<(i) the Algeo volume, (ii) Johnís PhD thesis
<on the Blavatsky letters and (iii) a copy
<of the manuscript sent by John to the TPH before
<his death. If I compare them I find sentence after
<sentence reproduced but for a word or two. Does
<anyone seriously believe that, between the time of
<Johnís death and the publication of the Algeo volume,
<the complete text was re-researched and created anew?
