Rationale for this Project


Summary of Progress during July - September 2022
  1. I spent 243 hours in 22Q3 on this Project, or related work (1019.25 hours YTD, where for "YTD" - Year to Date - I mean the (academic) year that commenced in October 2021). That's 77.7% of the planned effort (86.9% YTD). Overall, 37.7% of my Project effort in the Quarter was directed towards this project (making 37.5% YTD) - as against 40% planned (36.9% YTD).
  2. As can be seen, I used only about three-quarters of my time budget – which had, admittedly, increased from the previous quarter. The reason for the shortfall was mostly down to the distraction of my dog Henry’s ill-health and death, together with our holiday in Norfolk.
  3. To control the various links within my Thesis, I’ve created and maintained a PID Note Usage5 Page.
  4. I continued making a detailed analysis of "Baker (Lynne Rudder) - Persons and Bodies: A Constitution View", though got somewhat side-tracked on the useful "Van Inwagen (Peter) - Materialism and the Psychological-continuity Account of Personal Identity".
  5. I started reading the clear and helpful "Kagan (Shelly) - How to Count Animals, more or less".
  6. I started Henry’s biography6. Whether It’ll get anywhere now I have the distraction of Bertie remains to be seen. Various other items read this Quarter revolved around pets, and animal rights generally.
  7. As is usual at holiday time, I continued my reading and annotation of W. Somerset Maugham, completing "Somerset Maugham (W.) - Collected Short Stories: Volume 1".
  8. Other rather tangential Thesis-items included significant progress on:-
    "Rushdie (Salman) - The Satanic Verses", and
    "Zubok (Vladislav M.) - Collapse: The Fall of the Soviet Union".
    Both being relevant to current events.
  9. It’s never possible to do it justice to Aeon, when a dozen or so interesting papers turn up every week. I did, however, read some interesting items and maintained the prioritisation to restrict the top priority to 10 items.
  10. Progress between reports can be obtained from the relevant section of my Summary Task List7.
  11. A full list of items worked on in the quarter appears below:-
    Thesis (Total Hours = 131.5)
    1. Thesis - Reading / Writing (Total Hours = 118.75)
    2. Thesis - Research Repositioning
