Dorn's Meditative Philosophy translated into Japanese by Ryohei Irie based on my own English translation from the Latin:

Amazing.

Have you had your English translation published either in book form or on the Internet ?

Yes, here:

These are pretty unpolished so I didn't offer them to you for the Magnum Opus.

Feel free to link to them or even copy them over to your website.

Maybe the high-IQ Japanese can make some sense of this difficult author!!!

Can I put it on the website? It would get you some more exposure.

Would you want a short note at the beginning saying this is not a final translation, or something to that effect?

Yes, please put it on your website. Besides the Meditativa there are a couple of other Dorn translations in there which you can also put on the site.

You can say:

Some time ago Paul Ferguson, who translated Dorn's Speculative Philosophy for my Magnum Opus series, did some more Dorn translations on a private basis for a philosopher who wished to incorporate some of Dorn's ideas in a forthcoming book.

These translations do not have the polish of Paul's Speculative Philosophy translation, but great care was taken to produce an accurate rendering of the original Latin. They are offered here as a useful starting-point for anyone researching this interesting author.
