It is really a sub-topic in my <a name="1"></a><A HREF = "../Notes_5/Notes_519.htm">Philosophy of Religion</A><SUP>1</SUP> project, with its penultimate chapter considering the metaphysical possibility of resurrection. </li><li>While I m interested in the topic of my research in its own right, I think when I ve sorted it out a bit, and have something to say, I ll want to engage with other philosophers active in this field  and re-starting a PhD at Birkbeck or elsewhere might be the only effective way to do this. </li><li>While a PhD is not an end in itself, and certainly not the ultimate aim of my doing philosophy, it s still true that a PhD would teach me research techniques, provide focus and direction, and furnish a professional qualification should I want to publish any results in this or any other area of philosophy.</li><li>The jumping-off point for my thesis is <a name="2"></a><A HREF = "../Notes_7/Notes_733.htm">here</A><SUP>2</SUP>, and a progress dashboard is <a name="3"></a><A HREF = "../Notes_10/Notes_1024.htm">here</A><SUP>3</SUP>.

That's 82% of the planned effort (96% YTD). Overall, 52% of my Project effort in the Quarter was directed towards this project (making 49% YTD) - as against 54% planned (46% YTD).<!-- FUNCTOR_END --></li><li>My planned effort was 25 hours / week: approximately what I d expect to put in to a part-time PhD. Unfortunately, unlike last quarter, I was nowhere near achieving it. However, most of the effort expended was on relevant items! </li><li>The main focus of the quarter was that I continued updating my Notes on Personal Identity. As noted last time, I ve decided to change my approach in the short term. Rather than spending ages researching the reading lists, I ll just list those books / papers on the relevant topic that I ve actually read, and supply brief text. As a second pass I ll use what I ve read to update that text. </li><li>The detailed list below reflects the Notes updated together with associated papers where I could be bothered to record time against these separately. </li><li>In addition:- <ul type="disc"><li>Completed reading <BR>&rarr; <a name="140"></a>"<A HREF = "../../BookSummaries/BookSummary_06/BookPaperAbstracts/BookPaperAbstracts_6719.htm">Dershowitz (Alan M.) - Genesis Of Justice</A>"<BR>&rarr; <a name="141"></a>"<A HREF = "../../BookSummaries/BookSummary_06/BookPaperAbstracts/BookPaperAbstracts_6713.htm">Gawande (Atul) - Being Mortal: Illness, Medicine and What Matters in the End</A>"<BR>&rarr; <a name="142"></a>"<A HREF = "../../BookSummaries/BookSummary_06/BookPaperAbstracts/BookPaperAbstracts_6699.htm">Harari (Yuval Noah) - Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind</A>"<BR>&rarr; <a name="143"></a>"<A HREF = "../../BookSummaries/BookSummary_06/BookPaperAbstracts/BookPaperAbstracts_6707.htm">Holloway (Richard) - Waiting for the Last Bus: Reflections on Life and Death</A>"<BR>&rarr; <a name="144"></a>"<A HREF = "../../BookSummaries/BookSummary_06/BookPaperAbstracts/BookPaperAbstracts_6559.htm">Kazez (Jean) - The Philosophical Parent: Asking the Hard Questions About Having and Raising Children</A>"</li><li>Started reading:-<BR>&rarr; <a name="145"></a>"<A HREF = "../../BookSummaries/BookSummary_05/BookPaperAbstracts/BookPaperAbstracts_5737.htm">Blackburn (Simon) - Truth: A Guide for the Perplexed</A>"<BR>&rarr; <a name="146"></a>"<A HREF = "../../BookSummaries/BookSummary_06/BookPaperAbstracts/BookPaperAbstracts_6708.htm">Harari (Yuval Noah) - Homo Deus: A Brief History of Tomorrow</A>"<BR>&rarr; <a name="147"></a>"<A HREF = "../../BookSummaries/BookSummary_06/BookPaperAbstracts/BookPaperAbstracts_6705.htm">Updike (John) - Self-Consciousness</A>"</li></ul></li><li>Progress between reports can be obtained from the relevant section of my <a name="5"></a><A HREF = "../Notes_9/Notes_975.htm">Summary Task List</A><SUP>5</SUP>.

Further, given I m not getting any younger, it could also be wasting time which should be focussed on using the most relevant materials. </li><li>So, if what I ve read and written on  in the form of particular papers on a particular topic  is most relevant, I ll  process that, but otherwise will start anew. </li><li>As far as effort is concerned, I ve had to reduce the plan from <U><A HREF="#On-Page_Link_518_9">25 hours / week</A></U><SUB>9</SUB><a name="On-Page_Return_518_9"></A> to 20 hours / week on account of the distractions noted elsewhere. </li><li>So, despite the above caveat, the primary tasks for the next quarter will be to complete a full review and update of the <A Href="../../Notes/Notes_Jump_1.htm" TARGET = "_top">Notes</A> I ve created on Personal Identity, focusing on those directly referenced by my <a name="7"></a><A HREF = "../Notes_0/Notes_7.htm">Current Beliefs</A><SUP>10</SUP>. </li><li>Following that, the focus (if you can call it that) will be on the following <U><A HREF="#On-Page_Link_518_11">bumper list</A></U><SUB>11</SUB><a name="On-Page_Return_518_11"></A>:- <BR><!-- FUNCTOR_ID=09 --> <ol type="I"><li>Continue with my <a name="8"></a><A HREF = "../Notes_7/Notes_733.htm">Thesis</A><SUP>12</SUP>; in particular fill out those sections that I can write something on without further research.
