Rationale for this Project


Summary of Progress during October - December 2013
  1. Things improved somewhat in 4Q13 on the topic of my research, though I’m still not up to speed.
  2. Anyway, I spent 169 hours in 4Q13 (169 hours YTD, where for “YTD” – Year to Date – I mean the (academic) year that commenced in October 2013) on my Thesis or Thesis-related work. That’s 64% of the planned effort (64% YTD), though not always on the tasks planned. Overall, 28% of my Project effort in the Quarter was directed towards this project (making 28% YTD) – as against 37% planned (37% YTD).
  3. Progress between reports can be obtained from the relevant section of my Summary Task List (Click_Here2).
  4. This quarter, key items were as follows:-
  5. More detail follows:-

Thesis (Total Hours = 151)
  1. Thesis - Reading / Writing (Total Hours = 146)
  2. Thesis - Research Repositioning (Total Hours = 5)

Thesis Background (Total Hours = 18)
  1. Thesis Background - Reading / Writing
  2. Thesis Background - Books Admin
  3. Thesis Background - Status

Plans for the Near Future – Top Priority Tasks

I require rigorous focus on the priority tasks and books. The lower-priority reading is not likely to get a look in in the near future.
  1. Core Reading / Writing:
  2. Background Reading / Writing:
  3. Research Repositioning:
    • Complete a full review and update of the Notes I’ve created on Personal Identity, focusing on those with little / no content other than a reading list.


Plans for the Near Future – Lower Priority Tasks
  1. Core Reading / Writing:
  2. Background Reading / Writing:
  3. Research Repositioning:
    • Review Thesis Outline6 to see if it still makes sense.
    • Review Research Proposal7 to see if this also still makes sense.
    • Review / Progress Essay8 What Are We?

Summary of Progress to Date

This isn’t going to change much in the near future, so I’ve hived it off to a separate Note9 (which requires updating).



In-Page Footnotes

Footnote 3: Guy was my final year supervisor during by BA at Birkbeck; hence my interest in what he’s been doing.

Footnote 4: The topic is of only tangential interest; the book is difficult and irritating.

Footnote 5: This is my second attempt at a trial! That in the previous quarter didn’t even get started.
