Rationale for this Project


Summary of Progress during July - September 2018
  1. I spent 239 hours in 3Q18 on this Project, or related work (1143 hours YTD, where for "YTD" - Year to Date - I mean the (academic) year that commenced in October 2017). That's 92% of the planned effort (95% YTD). Overall, 41% of my Project effort in the Quarter was directed towards this project (making 47% YTD) - as against 51% planned (47% YTD).
  2. My planned effort was 20 hours / week5. Unfortunately, like last quarter, I failed to achieving it – though wasn’t too far off. Moreover, most of the effort expended was on relevant items!
  3. The main focus of the quarter was that I continued updating my Notes on Personal Identity. As noted in recent reports, I had decided to change my approach in the short term. Rather than spending ages researching the reading lists, I’d intended just to list those books / papers on the relevant topic that I’ve actually read, and supply brief text. However, I’ve been using my auto-XRef routines to develop the reading lists, which – while useful – has held things up a bit. As a second pass I’ll use what I’ve read to update that text.
  4. The detailed list below reflects the Notes updated together with associated papers where I could be bothered to record time against these separately.
  5. In addition:-
