Rationale for this Project


Summary of Progress during October – December 2015
  1. I spent 255 hours in 4Q15 on my Thesis or Thesis-related work (255 hours YTD, where for “YTD” – Year to Date – I mean the (academic) year that commenced in October 2015). That’s 108% of the planned effort (108% YTD). Overall, 40% of my Project effort in the Quarter was directed towards this project (making 40% YTD) – as against 35% planned (35% YTD).
  2. Progress between reports can be obtained from the relevant section of my Summary Task List (Click_Here4).

  5. Enhanced my Notes on:-
  6. This led me to review the works in my possession by the following authors:-
  7. A tip-off from Patheos (Web Link) enabled me to download about 130 full-text philosophy books published by Springer Verlag prior to 2005.

  9. Completed reviews of:-
