About 12 years ago, in July 2001, I submitted my thesis “Zwischen Weltverbesserung und Isolation – Reflexionen der Moderne im dramatischen Werk Ernst Tollers” to complete my university degree in Mathematics and German Linguistics and Literature.
I wrote the document using Latex and GNU Emacs on a GNU/Linux system. It is available in PDF format.
The LaTex source files of the thesis are also available. The structure is very straightforward and uses predefined macro definitions that can be generally useful for writing essays, books and academic papers in the Liberal Arts.
For those who are fed up with their word processor messing with their layouts and prefer to just write plain text: Take a look at how simple, for example my introduction chapter is.
If you are interested, feel free to reuse my LaTeX macros in STYLE.tex.
The LaTeX code is compatible with TeX Live, version 2012. On Debian stable (wheezy) installation is as simple as
sudo apt-get install texlive texlive-latex-extra texlive-lang-german evince wget https://github.com/odoepner/toller-moderne/archive/master.zip unzip master.zip cd toller-moderne-master/src/main/tex pdflatex MAIN.tex evince MAIN.pdf
