Some Duhem and Jaki on-line

Due to copyright or other restrictions, or the challenges of time, only a very limited sample of the writings of Duhem and Jaki has hitherto been made available out here in the e-cosmos. But at the least, this provides a resource for those who would like to learn a little before actually borrowing or buying their books.
