It is really a sub-topic in my <a name="1"></a><A HREF = "../Notes_5/Notes_519_43017976.htm">Philosophy of Religion</A><SUP>1</SUP> project, with its penultimate chapter considering the metaphysical possibility of resurrection. </li><li>While I m interested in the topic of my research in its own right, I think when I ve sorted it out a bit, and have something to say, I ll want to engage with other philosophers active in this field  and re-starting a PhD at Birkbeck or elsewhere might be the only effective way to do this. </li><li>While a PhD is not an end in itself, and certainly not the ultimate aim of my doing philosophy, it s still true that a PhD would teach me research techniques, provide focus and direction, and furnish a professional qualification should I want to publish any results in this or any other area of philosophy.</li><li>The jumping-off point for my thesis is <a name="2"></a><A HREF = "../Notes_7/Notes_733_42465972.htm">here</A><SUP>2</SUP>, and a progress dashboard is <a name="3"></a><A HREF = "../Notes_10/Notes_1024_42465972.htm">here</A><SUP>3</SUP>. </li><li>Maybe a better place to find my current views is <a name="4"></a><A HREF = "../Notes_0/Notes_7_43009748.htm">here</A><SUP>4</SUP>. </li></ul><BR><B><U>Summary of Progress during July - September 2017</B></U><ol type="1"><li>I spent 340 hours in 3Q17 on my Thesis or Thesis-related work (828 hours YTD, where for  YTD  Year to Date  I mean the (academic) year that commenced in October 2016). That s 185% of the planned effort (113% YTD). Overall, 48% of my Project effort in the Quarter was directed towards this project (making 31% YTD)  as against 26% planned (27% YTD). </li><li>I d slightly reduced my planned effort, but in fact doubled the time I d spent on this project in the previous quarter. This was enabled because of the amount of time liberated as a result of my abandonment of Bridge. About time too, I might add. Maybe unfortunately, this free time and more besides was spent on the item below. </li><li>As last quarter, a considerable amount of time was spent on papers issued under the aegis of <em>Aeon</em>, including sorting out the filing system and the <a name="5"></a><A HREF = "../Notes_12/Notes_1253_43017976.htm">summary Note</A><SUP>5</SUP>. These are very interesting, and of wide scope. Not many of them are strictly germane to my research interests, but  as in the last two quarters  I continued to read  and where possible remark on  the one or two of interest that appear daily. I have found this very satisfying and it has raised a lot of issues across a broad range of topics, many relevant to my research.</li><li>A lead from the above was the work of <a name="323"></a><A HREF = "../../Authors/K/Author_Kingma (Elselijn).htm">Elselijn Kingma</A> on the metaphysics of pregnancy, and the possible implications for animalism. </li><li>I completely re-wrote the Note describing my <a name="6"></a><A HREF = "../Notes_0/Notes_7_43009748.htm">Current Beliefs</A><SUP>6</SUP> on the topic of Personal Identity. I found this a very useful exercise, and it is also useful in determining which other Notes require urgent progression. I sent this to Pete for review, and have received some interesting feedback. <a name="324"></a><A HREF = "../../Authors/B/Author_Botros (Sophie).htm">Sophie Botros</A> has agreed to review it as well, when I ve licked it into shape. </li><li>Sophie got me to update her website to announce her new book, published towards the end of September, <a name="285"></a>"<A HREF = "../../BookSummaries/BookSummary_06/BookPaperAbstracts/BookPaperAbstracts_6536.htm">Botros (Sophie) - Truth, Time and History: A Philosophical Enquiry</A>". She invited me to a Salon run by <a name="325"></a><A HREF = "../../Authors/B/Author_Black (Oliver).htm">Oliver Black</A> at his house in Spittalfields and at which she gave a talk on the topic. She gave me a copy of the book which is of some relevance to my research. I ve been added to the list of regular invitees to the Salon. </li><li>Somehow, I got to look into the controversy raised by <a name="23"></a>"<A HREF = "../../Abstracts/Abstract_06/Abstract_6770.htm">Smith (Quentin) - Marcus, Kripke, and the Origin of The New Theory of Reference</A>", probably via <a name="24"></a>"<A HREF = "../../Abstracts/Abstract_22/Abstract_22561.htm">Holt (Jim) - Whose Idea Is It Anyway?
