Sorabji Resource Site (SRS)

Number of Works and Pages per Medium

This page offers a breakdown of Sorabji’s production into nine categories, three of which are further subdivided, for a total of twelve; this corresponds to what was done by Paul Rapoport in SCC. Statistics about the number of works per category and the number of pages, in both absolute numbers and percentages, are offered. The last column gives the average number of pages per category, that is, Pages (N)/Works (N).
