Rationale for this Project


Summary of Progress during January – March 2017
  1. I spent 150 hours in 1Q17 on my Thesis or Thesis-related work (318 hours YTD, where for “YTD” – Year to Date – I mean the (academic) year that commenced in October 2016). That’s 84% of the planned effort (88% YTD). Overall, 22% of my Project effort in the Quarter was directed towards this project (making 24% YTD) – as against 29% planned (29% YTD).
  2. In addition to again spending less time than planned, I again didn’t spend it on the tasks planned.
    1. As last time, I did spend some time (about 33 hours) improving my Notes and the reading-lists associated therewith. Further effort was booked to the papers in the reading lists.
    2. Also, I had a careful look through the essays in "Blatti (Stephan) & Snowdon (Paul), Eds - Animalism: New Essays on Persons, Animals, and Identity", though I haven’t engaged with them in detail yet.
    3. A considerable amount of time was spent on papers issued under the aegis of "Hains (Brigid) & Hains (Paul) - Aeon: A-B". These are very interesting, and of wide scope. Not many of them are strictly germane to my research interests, but I intend to continue to read – and where possible remark on – the one or two of interest that appear daily. It may be that this becomes too distracting and time-consuming to continue with.
    4. As another background task I’ve taken up re-reading and reviewing "Somerset Maugham (W.) - Short Stories".
    5. Completed reading "Ayer (A.J.) - Part of My Life".
    6. At last, completed a draft version of “Why Play Bridge?4”.
  3. Progress between reports can be obtained from the relevant section of my Summary Task List5.
  4. More detail follows:-

Thesis (Total Hours = 74)
  1. Thesis - Reading / Writing (Total Hours = 72.25)
  2. Thesis - Discussions (Total Hours = 1.25)
  3. Thesis - Research Repositioning (Total Hours = 0.5)

  1. Thesis Background - Reading / Writing (Total Hours = 70)
  2. Thesis Background - Books Admin (Total Hours = 4.25)
