Here it is! My blood, sweat and tears. Still very much a draft since I haven't included the input from my professors yet. Feel free to let me know what you think! I could certainly use the feedback. Also, if you guys have some idea which journals to submit this to, let me know.

This is a very interesting piece of work with some thought-provoking statements! Thank you for sharing it.

I do have several (critical) queries. At the moment, I'm not sure whether they arise from my lack of knowledge of your field and its conventions. I'm a historian and I stand very much in the rationalist/empiricist tradition. All I can say about my qualifications to comment on your work is that I know X extremely well, but that Levi-Strauss makes me think of jeans in the first instance! Make of that what you will. ;-)

If you are interested in my comments, I'll be happy to type them up and send them to you by email, but I wasn't sure if I should subject you to (possibly unqualified) criticism without much of an idea how the issues I see could be resolved.

Let me know if you want to discuss this (and perhaps educate me).
