Enrollment: Unlimited: No advance sign-up

Due to popular demand, a tutorial on LaTeX. I go through the basics of using LaTeX (the professional-looking typesetting thing used for most MIT handouts) for philosophy handouts/papers. Coverage includes:

* The what and why of LaTeX (its grounds and so on...)
* How to create a bare-bones paper and handout
* Margin notes!
* Using BibTeX and other bibliography packages
* Logic/math environments
* Converting LaTeX to Word Doc and other formats

In short, I save you time otherwise spent Googling how to do X in LaTeX.
